I just don’t want to look back and think “I could have eaten that.”

Fried Egg Salad – Yam Kai Dao

In today’s post I wanted to share with you a quick recipe that I really enjoy. It’s a salad made with fried eggs and Thai dressing. At my house we love the runny yoke version which is the way that I’ve seen it in Thailand. However, if you are interested in trying this recipe, but don’t like the oozing then please feel free to cook the eggs all the way through.

  5. Place the eggs on a plate and garnish with onions and cilantro
  6. Pour the dressing over the eggs before serving


This fried egg salad goes great with hot rice. We eat purple rice at my house hence the pop of color that you see in this picture.


Doesn’t that look amazing?! If you enjoy eggs sunny side up, give this recipe a try!
