City of Savannah is at its absolute glory clothed in azaleas, dogwoods, and wisterias in full bloom. As the weather is getting warmer quickly, here is a refreshing side dish inspired by Thai cuisine.
To avoid having fibrous strands, fresh ginger should be sliced thinly in round discs before chopped in food processor. If you need only a small amount of fresh ginger, you can use Microplane grater, going against the grain or fiber.
All vegetables and sauce can be prepared up to two days ahead. Refrigerate separately until ready to toss.
