Vietnamese Chicken and Mint Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Carianne

This comes from Nigella Lawson. I have tried it several times now, it is very good as a take to work lunch. I substitute Splenda for the sugar, and it is only 3 weight watcher points.

I used this recipe as a base for cabbage rolls. Basically, I wrap it in the cabbage leaves instead of shredding it, and dip it in nuoc chom. I skip the sugar, but otherwise keep it the same. This is a wonderful recipe! I make it at least once a month :)
