Vietnamese Chicken Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by J. Ko

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.

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.
