Description: A salad, effectively a cold dish, made with any of raw chicken or beef, duck, pork, turkey, occasionally even fish. The meat and innards are finely chopped and mixed with shredded vegetables, mint, chillis, fish sauce and lime, prepared rather like ceviche, with ground, toasted rice. The Lao prefer a version called laap seua, which is raw, but it is generally served cooked to foreigners.
