Anyone tried Bittman's pad thai-style rice salad recipe?

Apologies if there's already a post on this buried in the archives. If there is, I couldn't find it.

Has anyone tried this recipe? http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/30/din...

My dad is coming for Christmas and he loves Asian flavors. Just trying to come up with a few meal ideas.

  1. Thanks for putting this on my radar. I made it last night, using only chicken, and it was delicious.

    Other bastardizations due to being snowbound and too lazy to hike to the store: No lime juice so I used fresh Meyer lemon juice. And added a heaping tablespoon of Huy Fong chili garlic sauce because... well, just because.

      Sweet, thanks for testing it out! I wanted to try it without shrimp, so that was a lucky coincidence. :)

    2. I haven't tried it, but I've bookmarked the recipe and will be sure to in the future, thanks! (We're super-rural and sourcing some items can be a pain unless I'm shopping online, so I loved the ketchup substitution for tamarind paste, and how to "help it along" if you do so.)
