Shredded Green Apple Salad With Fish Sauce + Cilantro
This is crunchy, bright and surprisingly complex in flavor.
Serve with grilled pork, fish or chicken, or atop a bowl of rice with a fried or poached egg.
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
4 tart green apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled
1 small shallot, minced
Large handful cilantro leaves and tender stems, chopped
Whisk together the fish sauce, vinegar and sugar in a mixing bowl.
Grate the apples on the large-holed side of a box grater over that bowl; discard the cores.
Add the shallot and cilantro, tossing lightly to incorporate and coat with the dressing. Serve right away.
Serves 4 (makes a generous 3 cups)
