Laab is a type of Laos meat salad that is known as an unofficial national dish of Laos. This recipe calls for chicken but for vegetarians, you can use firm tofu as well. It is also eaten in the Isan region, an area of Thailand where the majority of the population is of Lao ethnicity. The Hmong people, an ethnic minority group who migrated into the country in the nineteenth century, have adopted the Lao dish along with many other elements of Lao cuisine. Local variants of laab also feature in the cuisines of the Tai peoples of Shan State, Burma, and Yunnan province, China. Enjoy this dish with sticky rice and a side of lettuce.
