Vietnamese Cabbage and Chicken Salad

The Savoy Cabbage in this dish is a sweet, tender, light and crinkly cabbage. Savoy is high in vitamin K, vitamin C and fiber. It’s also a very good source of fiber, manganese, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids. If you have trouble finding it at your market you can also use Chinese cabbage, or a mixture of romaine and ice burg lettuce cut into very thin slices.

A word about fish sauce… it is important to buy a good fish sauce that is from the first pressing, with no added fillers, colors or chemicals. “Red Boat Fish Sauce” is a great fish sauce and is free of additives and sugar. North Vietnam tours
