Saigon Chicken Salad
- 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro (including stems)
- 5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 4-inch-long bottom portion of large lemongrass stalk, finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
- 3 large kaffir lime leaves, minced (1 generous teaspoon)
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- Coarse kosher salt
- 1 1/4 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast halves (4 to 5)
- 5 tablespoons fish sauce (such as nam pla or nuoc nam)
- 1/4 cup (packed) light palm sugar or golden brown sugar
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons minced Thai chiles or serrano chiles with seeds
- 2 large garlic cloves, pressed
- 3 cups 2-inch pieces trimmed Chinese long beans or green beans (about 10 ounces)
- 8 ounces plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise, seeds and pulp removed, shells cut into long thin strips
- 1 cup coarsely grated peeled daikon (Japanese white radish) or trimmed red radishes
- 1 cup coarsely grated seeded Persian cucumbers (about 3)
- 1 cup very thinly sliced green cabbage
- 1 cup coarsely grated carrot
- 1 cup celery leaves
- 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 3 green onions, thinly sliced on diagonal
- 1/2 cup salted roasted peanuts, split in half
- Ingredient info: Lemongrass, fish sauce, palm sugar, and daikon can be found at some supermarkets and at Asian markets. Kaffir lime leaves are sold frozen or sometimes fresh at Asian markets. If unavailable, substitute 1 tables poon fresh lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel for each lime leaf.
- Test-kitchen tip: Palm sugar can be very hard, making it difficult to measure. To soften it, microwave the palm sugar (s till in the jar) in 10-second intervals at 50 percent power.
