This recipe is from It's a food/recipe blog I stumbled upon and it's great food porn. He states in the recipe that this is not exactly authentic but delicious nonetheless. I tried it tonight in bun(Vietnamese cold noodle salad) and it was soooo good! Would be so good on just plain steamed white rice too!
