    I've made this salad twice, once as written and once with LN's snap pea variation instead of spinach. It is easy and versatile but consider adding some lime juice for a hit of acid. Also, it definitely tastes better spicier (though I've been leaving out most of the peppers on account of the kids).

    We had spinach in our CSA, but a rather small amount, and you know how spinach cooks down. So my proportions were not what was called for. I used cherry tomatoes, in a variety of colors. We were out of peanuts, so I chopped up some Marcona almonds. I made this dish after work and, I used it to accompany a chicken dish. I hadn't done any advance prep, so I made the fried shallots with the shallot oil, and the shrimp powder, just before I made the salad. Surprisingly workable. This is one more aromatic and tasty dish from the book. I do think the peanuts would have been better than the last minute almond switchout, but even so, another success.
