Inspired by the traditional Vietnamese sandwich, this deconstructed version is transformed into a chopped salad, featuring the classic Vietnamese fixings tossed in a healthified version of the famous sriracha mayo for a creamy and spicy salad dressing. Get ready, this salad is bursting with flavor and texture in every bite.
For the Salad:
Incorporate your protein of choice: diced chicken or pork, cubed tofu, chopped hard boiled egg, quinoa, or edamame all work well
For the Dressing:
Whisk together dressing ingredients. Toss salad ingredients and protein together with dressing. Top with toasted sesame seeds, and garnish with cilantro.
