I am of Vietnamese descent, but my language skills are dismal. This is a Vietnamese dish that we used to eat at dinner, I cannot recall the name so I made up a name for it. My kids love this dish.

It is awesome to see taste has no boundaries. I have been making this in sorts for years using a variety of greens I have, sometimes using pgk. coleslaw mix. Serving with soy sauce; hoisin sauce and sometimes left over gravy. Thanks for sharing Nado2003
