Serves 4 and is delicious, healthy and moreish! Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. This is a modified Neil Perry recipe. There are a lot of ingredients in this one and from start to finish for 1 person it will take about 1 1/2 hours to prepare.
2 chicken breasts, poached, or 1 roast chicken, shredded
PALM SUGAR DRESSING
To make the dressing, pound the coriander roots, garlic and sea salt to a fine paste in a mortar with a pestle. Put the palm sugar in a small pan with a dash of water, and allow it to dissolve over very low heat. Continue cooking, swirling the pan occasionally, until the sugar starts to turn a rich golden brown colour. Add the sherry vinegar to the pan and cook for a further 2 minutes, then allow to cool. Add the red wine vinegar and palm sugar mixture to the coriander paste, then whisk in the oil. Add the chopped coriander leaves and season to taste.
Combine the shredded chicken, vermicelli and remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl. Dress with the palm sugar dressing and toss well. Enjoy!
