About this recipe: A Vietnamese-inspired sauce made with coriander, chillies, lime juice, fish sauce and sugar is tossed with rice vermicelli, cucumber, shredded pek chye and carrots.
All other ingredients is right just want to confirm that in Vietnam people don't put napa cabbage (chinese cabbage) in noodle salad at all, but regular lettuce! The only cabbage salad dish in Vietnam is the one mixes with boiled shredded chicken and nuoc cham (fish sauce) that sometimes people substitute with napa cabbage. Also, we don't have jalapeno pepper in Vietnam, it's actually red chilly that have bigger size that look like a jalapeno but taste different. - 14 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a nice light and healthy meal, and very delicious. I substituted kale for the cabbage (for a little more nutrition) and dried thai peppers for the jalapenos. I'll be making this again. - 09 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Our vietnamese resturant closed and I was upset. I started looking for a good noodle bowl recipe and this one is real close. I use a drop of Chili oil instead of a jalapeno. I also use shredded lettace instead of chinese cabbage, because that how the resturant did it. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. - 09 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
