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!
Great summertime cabbage salad. It does need a little more lemon. Knowing that Vietnamese cuisine uses cilantro (ngo) I chopped some up and added it to the recipe which made it 5 stars. Either way it's good.
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.
This is wonderful and so easy to make. I used 2 small red onions and added a green pepper. I also had some leftover carrots, so I shredded one with my shredder and added it. My dh said, "it's coleslaw!" LOL!
