How to make Grilled Thai Green Bean Salad | Recipe:
- Whisk chilles, garlic, lime juice, sugar, soy sauce, and salt in a small bowl. Pour half of sauce into a shallow dish; reserve remaining sauce.
- Add 1 Tbsp. oil to sauce in shallow dish and whisk to combine. Add tofu and gently toss; set aside to marinate.
- Prepare a grill for medium-high heat (or heat a grill pan over medium-high). If using grill, arrange beans in grill basket and place on hot grill.
- Cover and grill, turning once halfway through, until beans are lightly charred and crisp-tender; for about 8 minutes. If using grill pan, cook beans directly on pan, tossing occasionally, until well charred and cooked; for about 10 minutes.
- Remove tofu from marinade, and transfer to a plate dry it. Now brush grill and tofu with oil and grill tofu, turning once halfway through, until lightly charred, 2–3 minutes per side. If using grill, be careful when turning, as tofu may stick. Transfer to plate and drizzle with left over marinade.
- Toss beans, mango, carrot, and 1/2 cup chopped cilantro with reserved sauce. Transfer to a platter and arrange tofu and avocados alongside. Top with peanuts and 1 Tbsp cilantro leaves. Arrange lettuce leaves on another platter. To serve, wrap tofu, avocado, and bean mixture in lettuce leaves.
- Serve the delight and savor the Thai.
