This vibrant, refreshing salad makes a great lunch or light dinner, but the dressing is really the star here. The bright lime and rich coconut milk pairs perfectly with briny fish sauce, spicy chile, and herbs. Warning: The dressing is addicting—it also makes a great dipping sauce for fresh spring rolls, chicken satay skewers, and lettuce cups. —Asha Loupy
To make the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, fish sauce, coconut milk, and palm sugar in a small bowl until the sugar is dissolved. Add the remaining dressing ingredients and stir to combine. Set aside.
To assemble, divide the rice equally between two bowls. Divide the rest of the toppings in half and arrange on top of the rice. Drizzle with desired amount of dressing, toss, and enjoy!
