Vietnamese Salads are often served with braised meat, herbs and rice vermicelli to create a complete meal. Simple Chicken Salad with Goi Ginger Dressing. One of the most popular Vietnamese salads is Gỏi Gà Bắp Cải. It's a refreshing salad of hand-shredded chicken, cabbage, carrots, onions and Vietnamese coriander; mixed with a sweet and savory fish sauce dressing; and topped with crunchy roasted peanuts and fried shallots. What is better on a hot summer day than fresh healthy salad? This is one of my favorites! Usually served with a small bowl of rice porridge (chao ga) or alone.
