This is a Vietnamese inspired chicken salad and is perfect for those hot summer evenings. Shredded chicken is tossed together with cabbage, oil and lemon juice.
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 - 31 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 25 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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! - 01 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
