Chad requested a grilled chicken salad last week, so I looked through my bookmarked recipes and came across this Vietnamese Banh Mi Salad by A Spicy Perspective. Banh Mi actually means bread in Vietnamese and is commonly used to describe the very popular Vietnamese Banh Mi Sandwich. This salad has a few more steps than previous ones I have made, but the results made it all worth it.
I loved absolutely everything about this salad, especially the marinade for the chicken. It will definitely become a part of our summer grilling rotation.
Fish sauce is a popular condiment in Southeast Asian cooking. It is known as nuoc mam in Vietnam, nam pla in Thailand, and patis in the Philippines. Most Southeast Asian fish sauce is made from anchovy, salt, and water. It has a strong smell and flavor, so it is usually only used in small amounts. Fish sauce can be found in most grocery stores in the Asian food section and Asian food markets. It is also available on Amazon: Nuoc Mam and Nam Pla.
