If you’re venturing out to learn a new cuisine, trust the professionals at Cooking Light Global Kitchen, by New York Times best-selling author David Joachim. It’s basically our new go-to book for making easy global recipes at home. Ready to make healthy Thai food at home? Try this recipe for savory chicken larb.

Also known as lap and lahb, larb is a minced meat salad and the national dish of Laos. Some Lao and Thai versions include fish sauce and some favor mint over cilantro (some use both), but the core of the dish remains a chopped salad of lightly spiced pork, beef, chicken, or duck brightened with fresh herbs. It’s great for potlucks because you serve it at room temperature.
