“My wife and I fell in love with this slaw years ago when it was served in a local Viet restaurant which has long since closed. After our son chose a Vietnamese wife, we were delighted to find that it is as common in Vietnam as cole slaw is here. Not only that but she had her great grandmother's recipe. Somehow I think this one is authentic. It goes well with almost anything, or as a meal in it's own right, or maybe with a Viet spring roll on the side.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss all but last 4 ingredients in large bowl.
  2. Whisk together last 4 ingredients until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Pour dressing over salad, and toss.
  4. Slaw is best if refrigerated for 30 min.-1 hour before serving, but is still wonderful if served immediately.
  5. Note: There is quite a bit of difference between fish sauces. Most grocery store versions are mainly salt flavor. For best results, take a trip to the Asian market if possible.
