My wife and I fell in love with this slaw years ago when it was served in a local Viet restaurant which has long since closed. After our son chose a Vietnamese wife, we were delighted to find that it is as common in Vietnam as cole slaw is here. Not only that but she had her great grandmother's recipe. Somehow I think this one is authentic. It goes well with almost anything, or as a meal in it's own right, or maybe with a Viet spring roll on the side.
