sweet chili on my mind

The other day I had the pleasure to eat such a good Thai-salad in a restaurant that I just had to try and make as similar as possible right as we got home.

Here's how I made it

Sweet chili sauce

Mix in a blender 2-3 red chillies without the seeds, 4 gloves of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of fleur de sel-salt, 1/4 dl of white balsamic vinegar, 1/2 dl of sugar and 1 dl of water. Then pour the mixture in a saucepan and cook slowly for about 5 minutes.

Mix 1/2 tablespoon of potatoflour and 2 tablespoons of water together and add to mixture. If sauce is too thick add a little more water.Mix and then let the sauce cool completely.

The end result did not tasteexactly the same but I was very happy with the one I made.

To add hotness to your salad, you can add the chili seeds to sweet chili sauce.
