This has to be one of my favourite recipes. It is easy to add to this to feed more people, and really, its all about the dressing. If you wanted to use a cooked chicken, or not julienne the carrots, no problem, it’s all about the dressing. And don’t you forget it. YUM. This recipe first appeared in Dinner Spinner the little cookbook I first created when I left Thermomix in Australia and went Indy! It soon made its way into the Spin A Dinner app, long since put to rest.

The dressing stands alone with any other salad of your choosing. I love Vietnamese mint as well these days and grow it, so that would work well in addition to the normal mint we are familiar with.
