Vietnamese Supper Salad

Jill Keb, Plant Life Journey Retreats
Let your machine do the work. Use your food processor grate, slice and pulse the veggies and make the dressing. No need to clean out your blades or food processor between steps, as it is all going in the same salad. We brought this to a big outdoor concert event and received tons of great comments and requests for the recipe!
