Its been numerous times I have made this and included it in the recipes. Maybe easier to just create a separate post with this recipe so I can refer to it all the time 😉 You can easily make it up front and keep it in the fridge. I always have it ready to make a Bun Cha Gio salad or the Cauliflower salad or as a dipping sauce for the Goi Cuon
