Vietnamese Chicken Salad

The dressing is what makes this salad! You don't have to adhere to the list of salad ingredients: put in whatever strikes your fancy. I usually grill up extra chicken breasts when we're having grilled chicken and use them to make up the salad for the next day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thinly slice the grilled chicken breast. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss together cabbage, mint and cilantro. Place on a large platter. Top cabbage mixture with the onion, peppers, cucumber, carrots, and chicken. Drizzle with reserved dressing, garnish with peanuts and cilantro sprigs, and serve.

you can do anything for the salad as long as you have this dressing ! I have used it on rice, shredded cabbage, on Vietnamese noodles...a definite winner.

used Sirachi sauce and sesame oil as substitutes, and used rice wine vinegar instead of white wine vinegar.

This was heavenly. DH had 3rds and I had seconds - this was for lunch, then we shared the leftovers for tea, yummo! This is a keeper, easy to make. I used the breasts off of a BBQ chicken and also went with the sesame/vegetable oil option.
