This Thai salad, known as a Yum in Thai, is made with Moo Yaw, a Thai Pork Sausage. Do not be fooled by the name Thai Salad. Our Yum Moo Yaw Thai salad recipe is very spicy. In general, a Thai salad or Yum is among the spiciest of Thai foods with more flavour per bite than most other Thai dishes. The Thai pork sausage, Moo Yaw, has a much higher pork content than most Western sausage. Many of the districts in Thailand have their own “special recipe” which they all claim to be the best. Moo Yaw is always sold pre-cooked.
