I love this salad, just the colour makes me happy. Easily put together, this is a keeper of a recipe.
It is very easy to adapt this recipe to your taste. Add what you want, taste test the dressing and make it yours.
You will need (as I made it)
2 handfuls of shredded red or white cabbage
1 carrot shredded
Lots of mixed salad leaves
Bunch of mint, coriander and Thai basil combined
A handful of roasted peanuts
A bundle of rice vermicelli cooked and cooled
3Tb fish sauce
3Tb lemon juice
1/2 Tb brown sugar
1Tb chilli sauce or Sriracha sauce
Vegetarians can use soy sauce or mirin instead of fish sauce.
Cook vermicelli, not too soft. I just soaked it in hot water for sometime. Drain and cool.
Mix everything else. Dress close to serving. Best eaten fresh.
I have sometimes added roasted broccoli and red capsicum to amp up the veggies.
