Goi Ga is a healthful, delicious Vietnamese “coleslaw”. Honestly this salad is quick and easy to make but I take a furthur short cut by purchasing a rotisserie chicken, cooling it, removing any skin and finely shredding it…salad in minutes. Of course the option to steam your own chicken is up to you.
