So easy. Found this in a magazine years ago, tweaked it for our liking. Serve with grilled fish, chicken, over a bowl of vermicelli noodles to make a salad, to dip Vietnamese rolls in or what ever takes your fancy. No chilling time required, just make and use. Keeps for 1 week in the fridge. Optional ingredients are great, but not necessary.
