"This simple Vietnamese salad is great for a hot summer night. The tart flavors of the onion, lemon, and salt are offset by the cabbage and chicken." — SUPERCAT912

This salad is great for a hot summer day here in North Queensland Australia. I did add finely chopped Vietnam mint and fresh mint.Served with spiced chicken and cold steamed rice and yoghurt mayonaise
I did not care for this recipe. A big disappointment.
This is a good basic recipe. I customized by adding some fish sauce mixed with water, garlic, sugar, olive oil. Everything else in the recipe stays the same.
My wife used to make a recipe similar to this which called for tuna instead of chicken. We both liked Vietnamese Chicken Cabbage Salad a lot. It's curiously habit forming, particularly when one is really hungry. My only modification was using extra virgin olive oil instead of regular olive oil. I was generous with the salt and pepper, which makes a big difference in the flavor. Over 50% of the calories are fat calories, but I'm okay with that: 1) the fat calories are "good fat" from the olive oil, and, 2) when paired with other healthy dishes, the fat percentage of the meal will reduce. I recommend this one!
This recipe was really quick and very delicious.
This was pretty good. I used one large, juicy lemon but would recommend that you use two. This was crisp and cold and perfect for summer, unfortunately I am currently surrounded by about a foot of snow. Which got me thinking that this would be really good heated up on the stove top for about 5 min. I didn't try that though. This is also nice because you can make it ahead of time.
Two unions is very over powering! If they were cooked, then added, it would be a great flavor. We had more union on each fork full then anything else! Over all, it was OK, but not great. My husband found it tastes really good heated in the skillet, with some fetta cheese. Or with a scrabbled egg (tastes like an eggroll). I wont be making it again.
It's more of a chicken cole slaw. It wasn't very filling.
