I had lunch this week at Saigon Grill. I ordered this delicious salad and it was soooo good I had to try and duplicate it at home. I must say my "home version" was pretty awesome!
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup fish sauce
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Vietnamese rice noodles-cooked according to package directions.
Rinse in cold water and set aside.
Chopped lettuce-Romaine or red leaf or a combination
3-4 green onions-sliced
¼ cup chopped cilantro
½ cup grated carrots
½ cup matchstick cut cucumber
1 cup bean sprouts
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts-cut in slices
(Pound them thin, sprinkle with salt and pepper and rub
crushed garlic into them. Then sauté them in olive oil for 3-5
minutes until cooked through and browned.)
Toss salad with dressing. Serve in bowls.
Top with sliced chicken.
