Vietnamese-Style Chicken Salad with Heaps of Vegetables

This dish is so easy and delicious that it appears regularly on our dinner table. When I was cooking one day, the amount of vegetables kept increasing and it turned into this recipe. Besides the steamed chicken and peanuts, the rest of the ingredients are based on what I have on hand. This time I had a lot of carrots . I eat a whole bowlful every time I make this. Coriander paste is a green paste made up of coriander mixed with garlic, ginger, etc. It is great for bringing out deep flavors. Recommendation: You can also use Wakegi scallions, lettuce, bell peppers, celery...even just cabbage and carrots is fine. It's all approximate but delicious! For 2500ml bowl. Recipe by zuci

Instruction :
1.
Sprinkle raw chicken with sake and salt, steam and let cool. Roughly chop up the peanuts. You can use them as-is but chopped will be easier to mix in with everything.
2.
Combine the ※ ingredients to make the sauce. Use coriander paste to bring out the depth of the flavor. Squeeze the lemon and then use a spoon to scoop and mix the juice in.
3.
Julienne the vegetables. Cut the carrots thinly and the green onions into 4cm pieces. You can use other ingredients as long as the total comes to 40% of the amount of cabbage.
4.
Mix everything together and it's done. Eat it when the vegetables become slightly tender. If water forms, drain it. This would also go well with fresh coriander, fresh red onion, or fresh green beans.
