Akha Salad – This fresh, healthy salad is made with cucumbers, tomatoes and lime juice. Roasted ground peanuts serve as a savoury finish, with fresh chopped green onions and coriander as a garnish. It’s served without oil.
Akha Sapi Thong – This is a classic dipping sauce that Akha people eat almost every day. You can dip just about any vegetable you like in this sauce. If you’re feeling inventive, you could even use this sauce to make a vegetable wrap. Sapi means “chilies” in Akha, while thong means “ground up.”
