Bun (Vietnamese Rice Vermicelli Salad)

Submitted by: ALICEJO

Introduction

I strongly recommend adding a protein to this dish. If you are, add protein while still hot. The salad works well with grilled fish or shrimp, or grilled pork.

Ingredients

    2 Cups of chopped lettuce
    2 Tbsp fresh basil, julienned strips
    2 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped
    4 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

    1/4 Cup grated carrot, or julienned strips
    3 Cups cooked rice vermicelli, cooled
    1 Cup water
    2 Tbsp Lime juice
    2 Tbsp fish sauce
    2 Tbsp granulated sugar (it says 6 tsp, this is the same)


Directions

Heat water in small sauce pan, add fish sauce, lime juice and sugar. Stirr until all sugar is dissolved. If you want, add a sprinkling of red pepper flakes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Combine lettuce, basil, mint, and cilantro and divide evenly into two large bowls. Add cooled vermicelli, and top with carrots and scallions. Pour dressing over salad and enjoy!

  • Good base recipe for one of my favourite meals. I like to use less fish sauce and sugar and add shredded cabbage for some extra crunch! If you add a lean protein and the extra cabbage you will eat less of the noodles and the calories stay nice and low. - 6/13/13

  • I thought the fish sauce was a bit overpowering. I'd have used less. Also wasn't a fan of the herbs. - 3/7/11

  • I would substitute splenda in the sauce as well as green leaf lettuce to make it more nutritious. You can easily make this 3 servings which would take the calories down to 206 calories which is much more reasonable. - 1/16/09

  • I'm assuming that this recipe is meant to serve two, since the directions say to divide evenly between two bowls. - 1/5/08

  • Sounds good, but a little high in calories, especially if I'm going to add a protein. - 10/9/07
