Dressing:

 

1 or 2 thai or serrano chiles, chopped, or 1 to two tsp sriracha (optional if you have young kids or midwesterners in your house)

1 or 2 cloves garlic, chopped

.5 tsp sugar

pinch salt

4 Tbs fish sauce

8 Tbs rice vinegar

 

Using a mortar and pestle, smash the chiles, garlic, half the sugar and a pinch of salt into paste, then mix with the fish sauce and vinegar and remaining sugar and set aside.

 

Salad:

 

2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded

1 small red onion, sliced thin

.5 cup distilled vinegar

1 small head green cabbage, cored and shredded

2 carrots, shredded

4 Tbs cilantro, chopped

 

Soak the onion in the vinegar for 10 or fifteen minutes.  Drain the vinegar and add the onions to a bowl along with the shredded chicken and other salad ingredients.  At this point everything can go in the fridge until ready to serve.  When ready, pour the dressing onto the salad and mix it well.   

 

The dressing is where the magic happens here- you can use a bag of pre-cut cole slaw just as well and it will turn out great.

Made this tonight for supper. What a great summer meal! Big hit with the fam. Thanks for posting.

 

I added some chopped peanuts on top, my daughter added some chow mein noodles to the top of hers (she doesn't like peanuts in stuff) both are recommended additions.

So good we made it again tonight (second time this week!) Made it with some thinly-sliced beef so I guess it's technically Goi bo this time. It's really amazing. I added the juice from 1/2 a lime to the dressing this time, it was a good call.

 

MAKE THIS IMMEDIATELY!

 

trust me.

I made a variation on this tonight.  It was pretty awesome.  I made a marinate for the chicken and added hoisin to the dressing.  Also didn't have cilantro, so I skipped it.

I made this with pecan smoked thighs. I did add the lime juice to the sauce after tasting it and like the addition. The 19 yr old made quick work of it also. I can see myself eating something like this for supper 3-4 nights a week once he heads back off to college. I've been eating very light suppers the past 6 months and have dropped about 25lbs. This is healthy and tasty enough to fill a void I've been feeling on certain nights.

I favor Red Boat. Recommended on here years ago and all I’ve ever used. It’s first pressed.
