Chicken Salad with Vietnamese Dressing

Serves 8-10
by Tenina Holder

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 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...which is available for Apple and Android...if you haven’t seen it already, then get it sorted. Its great to have when you’re at the shops! But I digress...hoping you love this as much as my family does.
