Method

With crunchy vegetables, poached chicken and a spicy sesame dressing, this Vietnamese salad recipe has a wonderful contrast of textures and flavours. Poaching the chicken will keep it wonderfully moist, although you could also use leftover meat from a roast to make this dish even easier to prepare.

Match this dish with a glass of our Cimarosa South African Chenin Blanc for the perfect pairing.

  1. Begin by preparing the chicken. Place the ginger, lime juice and coriander into a saucepan and pour in the coconut milk. Add the chicken breast to the pan and bring up to a simmer, then poach the chicken for 10 minutes, or until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the packet instructions and drain thoroughly. Transfer to a large bowl and mix through the celery, carrot, cucumber, spring onions and fresh herbs.
  3. To make the dressing, combine the lime juice, sugar, fish sauce, sesame oil and chilli in a small dish and mix until combined.
  4. Remove the chicken from the pan and allow to cool a little. Shred it into strips and add to the salad. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine, then divide between bowls and serve immediately.
