Sugar & Spice - Koh Samui slaw

Sugar_logo
Happy Friday peeps,

Today's recipe is a super simple Thai Lime slaw. This dish is amazing and healthy at the time (so no breaking those resolutions.) Works as great side dish or add a protein to have it as a stand alone meal. I swear it takes 5 minutes to make and will save your life when you're in a pinch.

Now some of you may be wondering "how do you guys come up with these names?"

Interesting story actually.... Megan brought this delicious Thai dish and as she explained how to make it my brain drifted off into the scene from "Meet the Parents" when Ben Stiller tells everyone about Robert De Niro's "secret" CIA life and then Dina says "Jack can't talk Thai" and then Ben Stiller says "0h, no, Dina, Jack can talk Thai. Jack talks Thai very well.." Anyway, I am linking the scene here so you can picture it too.

Either way that was the inspiration behind the Koh Samui name. I know I am a total movie nerd. hahaha. Well, I am done with my ramblings... you can now go onto the recipe :)
