I've been in the cooking mode for the last few weeks and have discovered some tasty recipes.
One of my favorite bloggers, Wandering Chopsticks has a treasure trove of wonderful recipes on her blog. She covers all sorts of cuisines, but Vietnamese is represented the most. Recently she had a post about Mi Xao Don Chay--Vietnamese Vegetarian Crispy Chow Mein. It is super-easy and tastes great. I especially liked the crunchy noodles with the tender veggies. I didn't use the chayote, but I think this is the type of recipe where you could sub in your favorite veggies.
I guess I was still in the Vietnamese cuisine mode when I spotted this recipe Vietnamese Chicken Salad. This was perfect on a warm summer night. I love the spicy dressing and mint. I used the purple basil, but I'm sure the green one is just as good.
