Vietnamese style green salad


This is the best salad to serve with the Vietnamese grilled chicken recipe (find it here). It’s fresh, light and so delicious – perfect for a quick supper or light lunch.

  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 3 tablespoons of lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 pointed green cabbage, washed and finely sliced
