Being too heavy handed with dressing can turn a salad very limp very fast - start with a small amount to begin with, toss the ingredients - and then decide if you need a little more.


1/4 cup olive oil

1 tbsp fish sauce

2 tbsp lime juice

1/2 to 1 tbsp soy sauce

crushed garlic

A little chopped fresh chilli

1-2 tsps palm sugar or raw sugar

1 tsp grated ginger


This is good added to a mix of shredded Chinese cabbage, shredded carrot, shallots, cucumber, fresh mint and coriander or Thai basil (toss in some chopped nuts and cooked, cooled noodles for more substance).
