Iceberg lettuce

4 individual, leaves

Coleslaw, without dressing

Vietnamese dipping sauce

40 ml, or dressing

Fried shallots

1 tbs

Notes

TIP: We used a salad kit that has cabbage, mizuna, carrot, red onion, radish, coriander, Vietnamese dressing and crispy shallots. Find it in the vegetable section of most major supermarkets. If unavailable, you could use any Asian-style salad leaves tossed with 2 tablespoons Vietnamese dressing and 1 tablespoon fired shallots.
