Serves: 4
  • One pound grapes (see post for more information), washed and patted dry
  • One pound medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, poached (see post), drained, and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (see post on how the amount depends on your grapes)
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 3 Thai bird's eye chilies or 1 Serrano pepper (more or less depending on your heat tolerance), sliced thinly crosswise
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • ¾ cup unsalted roasted cashews
  1. Place grapes and poached shrimp in a large salad bowl.
  2. Add the lime juice, fish sauce, chilies, and cilantro; toss everything together. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly (the salad should be sour first, then salty with the sweetness coming from the natural sugar in the grapes).
  3. Fold in the roasted cashews. Serve immediately.
