Amanda's Thai Style Mint, Chicken And Corriander Salad



  • 1 carrot, finely julienned
  • 4 spring onions, diagonally sliced
  • Handful of bean shoots
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, de-seeded and sliced into half moons
  • Handful of finely sliced iceberg lettuce
  • Big bunch of roughly chopped coriander
  • Handful of chopped Vietnamese mint, or normal mint if you can't get Vietnamese mint
  • Handful of raw unsalted cashews
  • You can add other salad ingredients if you like - whatever takes your fancy - slices of red capsicum, snow peas etc
  • Vermicelli rice noodles (optional)
  • 1 chicken breast, skin off (optional)


  • These quantities are a bit sketchy, start with the below and modify to your taste - it sort of depends on how juicy your limes are. You may need more dressing if you use the noodles as they tend to soak up dressing.
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • Juice of 1-2 limes
  • 2 TB brown sugar
  • 2 TB rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 TB fish sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
