How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, fish sauce, lime juice, vinegar, water, chile and garlic and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Let the dressing stand for 5 minutes.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the shallots and cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the shallots on paper towels; reserve the oil for another use. Sprinkle the shallots with salt and let cool.

Step 3    

In a large bowl, toss the cabbage, carrots, red onion, cilantro, mint and shredded chicken. Add the olive oil and the dressing and toss. Sprinkle with the peanuts and fried shallots and serve the chicken salad with lime wedges.

Suggested Pairing

A New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Review Body: It had a very bad taste when I tried it. Such a horrible recipe in my opinion. The lemon was not supposed to be part of this recipe. Same thing for the fried challots and the olive oil.
