Tip

This is perfect for a lunch party, as you can serve a variety of proteins.

Vietnamese Salad

This healthy, quick salad has great crunch and lots of refreshing flavors. It’s wonderful on its own and also takes well to simply prepared proteins; grilled fish, shrimp, chicken or tofu are great. This comes to us from one of our favorite home chefs, Lee Gross.

15 minutes
Serves 4

4 large bok choy leaves, rough bottoms discarded, stems cut into ¼” bias and leaves shredded

4 big leaves Napa cabbage, shredded

1 bunch watercress (discard thick stems), roughly chopped

1 large carrot, peeled and cut into matchsticks

the leaves from about 8 stems each basil, mint, cilantro, roughly chopped

½ small cucumber, thinly sliced on the bias

1 red Thai chili (or more…or less), thinly sliced

½ cup roasted, salted peanuts, roughly chopped

Vietnamese Dressing

grilled fish, shrimp, tuna, chicken, or tofu for serving (optional)

Toss the bok choy, cabbage, watercress, carrot, herbs, cucumber, chili and ¼ cup of the peanuts together with enough dressing to coat. Serve sprinkled with the remaining peanuts and whatever protein you like.
