How To: Make a Vietnamese salad with Gwyneth Paltrow

Make a Vietnamese salad with Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow joins Chef Lee Gross in the kitchen for a mouth-watering Vietnamese salad, a healthy, quick Vietnamese salad that has a great crunch and lots of refreshing flavors. This video recipe was made for Paltrow's website: GOOP.

This wonderfully crunchy salad is a must for any salad fan. It's wonderful on its own and also takes well to simply prepared proteins; grilled fish, shrimp, chicken or tofu are great.

SERVES: 4
TIME: 15 minutes

* 4 large bok choy leaves, rough bottoms discarded, stems cut into ¼" bias and leaves shredded
* 4 big leaves Napa cabbage, shredded
* 1 bunch watercress (discard thick stems), roughly chopped
