I grew up as a missionary kid in Cambodia, and most of my favorite foods have a Southeast Asian background. Locals love eating this pickled salad for breakfast, but I like it as a side for lunch or dinner, especially with satay chicken. —Hannah Heavener, Belton, Texas

"This recipe is so delicious. My son lives in Phenom Penh and I was looking for the food I had nearly every morning from a neighbors kitchen/grill when I was visiting. It was served with grilled pork eggs and rice. (Cost 90 cents!) i took it to a family function and they all loved it and they are not what you would call adventurous eaters. Thanks for posting this. I'm making it for myself tonight because I have been craving it ever since."
