Goi Banh Trang: Rice Paper Salad



Goi Banh Trang: Rice Paper Salad
Rice Paper Salad is very new to me. I would love to be able to make it, but it's one of those dishes that requires a lot of ingredients and preparation.
I must apologize because these photos are not doing this dish much justice. I tried to take a few decent ones, but I was so anxious to dig in that I couldn't wait any longer to eat.
So yummy is this crazy new dish that started in the streets of Saigon, Viet Nam. It has a very different flavor, thin rice paper un-wet. And do you know, when a rice paper isn't wet, it is tough. The whole purpose of this dish is to keep the rice paper un-wet until one is ready to eat.

I love the different textures, and spices. So exotic with different flavors, I love eating rare food, that doesn't include monkey brain, or dog meat. But I'd never refused a very fresh pair of fish eyes. Yumm!
Pictured here is the Rice Paper Salad I bought from a Vietnamese strip mall. It is missing the grilled liver ingredients, but everything else is present.
  • thin slices of rice paper
  • green onions
  • fried shallots
  • tiny dried shrimps
  • Persicaria odorata
  • julian cuts of mango
  • thin slices of beef jerky
  • chopped peanuts
  • quail eggs

  1. This sounds so good! Though I am not sure what Persicaria odorata is. I am going to have to go Google that.

    1. It is a type of herb, that is especially good in salads. The herb also has very Asian spice flavor

    1. One of my favorite currently. I am such an Asian food person, just looking at this dish makes me sad because today I have to eat American at parties. Yep, just hopeless about having to eat anything else but my favorites.
