Special House Salad from Saigon In & Out

Special House Salad


1 tsp. freshly minced chiles

2 Tbs. rice vinegar

2 Tbs. fish sauce

2 Tbs. sugar


1 cup green papaya, thinly sliced

1 cup daikon, thinly sliced

1 cup carrots, thinly sliced

Beef and shrimp:

5 steamed shrimp, peeled and cut in half

1 cup beef sirloin or flank steak, thinly sliced

¼ cup each: mint leaf, basil, cilantro, and crushed peanuts

1 tsp. minced garlic

3 Tbs. cooking oil

Gently combine all salad ingredients and arrange on a platter. To prepare the beef, combine it in a medium bowl with a little bit of sugar and salt. Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the garlic and saute until just fragrant; about 10 seconds. Add the beef and stir fry until charred on the edges; about two to three minutes. Arrange the beef and shrimp on top of the salad and spread the mint, basil, cilantro, and peanuts on top. Serve with the dressing on the side.
