Connie "Kiyu"'s notes for this recipe:
This dish is usually prepared for "Chesa" (side dish) as we call it. This type of dish, when you used the same ingredients mixed with grilled beef, chicken, or fish, (Not pork). We call it "Kelaguen".

Fresh, spicy and hearty all rolled into one salad?! You betcha! The flavors all blend wonderfully together and would make for a perfect game-time treat.

Hi Connie this cretainly looks very good. I can get all of the ingredients except the lemon grass for some reason it is hard to find down here. I will have to check one of the big supermarket chains like Publix. Thanks for sharing. LOL Blessings

Hi Juliann, you can always get the lemon grass at any Asian Market. Ask them if they carry them.

Thanks Connie for the tip. I have a large Asian supermarket in Miami where I get my chile paste, sesame oil and fish sauce. I never thought to check for the lemon grass. Thanks for the tip. I love your recipes. I want to try this recipe it realy looks hearty and filling because of the meat. Because, it's so hot I try to not heat up the house to much. This meat I can grill outside. Thanks again
