“This is a spicy Thai salad made with ground beef. The salad itself isn't something piled up on lettuce, but rather scooped up with lettuce leaves. Or, if you prefer, you could take spoonfuls of the meat with garnishes and wrap them in a softer lettuce, such as Boston, or red leaf. As always, adjust the spiciness to your own taste.”
