About this recipe: This is a wonderful Vietnamese style dish. Although it's called a salad, you can serve it alongside freshly cooked rice. Chicken is tossed with cabbage, carrot and onion in a fresh and fragrant dressing.

Yum, just had this for brunch and loved it. Clean, light and fresh. I'll reduce the fish sauce by .5 to 1 tablespoon next time though, as the flavour was a little too prominent. Yum....did I already say that? - 15 Jan 2011
