Directions

Whisk together the fish sauce, lime juice, vinegar, and sugar in a large bowl until the sugar is completely dissolved. Toss the cabbage with 2 teaspoons salt and the carrot with 1 teaspoon salt in separate bowls. Allow to stand for 30 minutes. Drain and rinse both vegetables. Place the cabbage and carrot in a clean kitchen towel, then twist to squeeze out any remaining water. Add the cabbage, carrot, shallot, garlic, and chili to the dressing. Mix well and allow to marinate for 20 minutes. Toss the chicken and all but 1 tablespoon of mint with the salad. Serve the salad garnished with the peanuts and remaining mint. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
