Vietnamese Chicken and Mint Salad

This salad is a Nigella Lawson recipe which I’ve tweaked a little.  I’m a fan of Nigella, even though she can do things like ham baked in Coca-Cola.  Not sure if the last scene in the Nigella Bites series where she goes to the refrigerator at night and stands in the open door wolfing down leftovers was her idea or the producers, but I think it’s really validated the act for me.  Except I’m never wearing full makeup and silky pajamas when I do it.  Maybe I need better pajamas.

I always double this dressing because it’s so good and it keeps for a few days.  My only changes to the dressing last night were to use half the sugar, add lime zest and increase the lime ratio.  I used ground chicken (because it’s what I had) and put it all on a bed of napa cabbage.
