I grew up in a city that has a significant Vietnamese population. Therefore, long before I had an appreciation for more popular international cuisines, I loved Vietnamese food.

From noodle soups, to the noodle salad bowls, and banh mi sandwiches, I haven’t met a Vietnamese dish I haven’t liked… And I crave it above all other national cuisines.

In college, I made a habit of visiting a particular Vietnamese restaurant once a week with a friend. On my limited student budget, their lunch specials were a bargain!

Each meal came with an appetizer portion of Vietnamese Cold Chicken Salad (Goi Ga), a crunchy chilled salad with a bold zesty flavor, and shredded chicken speckled throughout.

Now that we live hundreds of miles away from my favorite Vietnamese lunch spot, I have to make these dishes at home.

It’s crisp, fragrant, and loaded with veggies, with a tangy-sweet punch from the nuoc cham dressing. Plus, it easily fits into most diet plans!

    My husband and I thought this was absolutely delicious.  We put leftover grilled chicken thighs on it which had been done in a teriyaki marinade.  I cut back a tiny bit on the honey and fish sauce, but otherwise followed it exactly.  Can’t wait for the leftovers today for lunch.  Thanks for sharing this!
