I’m not a salad person by nature. But the sweet-salty-tangy-spicy Vietnamese sauce is irresistible to me.
In this recipe, cooked chicken are shredded and combined with finely cut fresh vegetables. Everything is tossed with nuoc mam pha to make a salad that has so many flavors that complement rather than compete. The toasted nuts add a delightful crunch and the fried shallots finish it off with a lovely sweetness from the caramelization of their natural sugar.
