Spicy Pork Salad


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 4 teaspoons hot chili paste (such as sambal oelek), divided
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (3-4 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce (such as nam pla or nuoc nam)

  • 2 cups (packed) fresh mint leaves, 1 cup chopped
  • 1 head of butter lettuce, leaves separated

Recipe Preparation

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and 2 teaspoons chili paste. Cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is softened, about 1 minute. Add pork and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until pork is cooked through, 6-8 minutes. Transfer pork mixture to a plate and let cool.

  • Meanwhile, whisk lime zest, lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, and remaining 2 teaspoons chili paste in a small bowl to combine.

  • Combine chopped onion, chopped mint, and half of dressing in a medium bowl. Add pork mixture and toss to combine. Toss lettuce, cucumber, sliced onion, whole mint leaves, and remaining dressing in a large bowl. Arrange salad and pork on a platter.

  • DO AHEAD: Pork mixture can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Serve cold or room temperature.
