Thai salad and dressing

Here is the salad and dressing that I made:

Salad - what you need:
 1-2 package(s) of lettuce
1 cucumber
korriander (cilantro)
1 bunch green onions
Optional: avocado

Put the lettuce in a bowl and chop up about 3/4 of the package and 1/2 of the basil package.  Slice the scallions.  You can either slice the cucumber or peel it and use the peeler and make long strips.

Add to the lettuce and mix

For the salad dressing:

You can prepare this ahead of time, but be sure and shake well before serving.  I drizzled some on the salad and then put the rest on the table in a bottle I'd found in Coop for people to add more.

What you need:
1 cup Coconut milk
2 Tbsp Soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp lime juice
2-3 cloves garlic
2 tsp brown sugar (muscovado)

 Mix everything and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Either use it immediately or put it in the fridge and shake when ready to use.
And here is the salad with the dressing
