vietnamese salad

This was delicious. I based it on this recipe on Goop.

bok choy
Napa cabbage
fresh basil
fresh mint
fresh cilantro
carrot matchsticks
cucumber slices
Thai red chili, sliced thinly
peanuts, roughly chopped
handful of bean sprouts
diced avocado

Roughly chop the greens and herbs. Toss all of the above together.

1/4 c. fresh lime juice
1 T. rice vinegar
2 tsp. soy sauce
1/4 c. fish sauce (Obvs not vegan-I have no idea what would work as a substitute, flavor-wise)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2-3/4 tsp. sesame oil
a few drops of Siracha chili sauce
a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar
minced garlic to taste
minced ginger to taste
finely diced shallot

Whisk together, drizzle over salad, then toss together.
