 Thai women make the buff softer by flame it on the fire then soak it in the cool water. When the buff is softer, they use the sharp knife to cut it into many thin slices. The buff now is yellow and brittle.

As many dishes of salad here, buff salad need a lot of spices, such as peanut, coriander, and mắc kén (a kind of forest pepper).

Especially, the thing that makes up the buff salad’s enchantment is sour bamboo shoot water but not lemon or vinegar. This water is made by soaking the fresh bamboo shoot in stream water with some necessary spices then wait for a period time.
