Ho Chi Minh Salad

15 Minute Ho Chi Minh Salad. Perfect meal-prep bowl for lunches on the go. For me personally, Sunday is Meal Prep Day! I prep my lunches for 3 days choosing a meal prep bowl, then have an easy wrap or leftovers for Thursday-Friday. Set yourself up for a great week of staying on track and get meal prepping these gorgeous bowls.

Serves: 4 Time: 15 minutes



Fresh Ingredients

  • 500g Beef Mince

  • 1 Cucumber, cut into batons

  • 2 Limes, cut into wedges

  • 4 Little Gem Lettuce, torn

  • 300g Carrots, ribboned

Other Ingredients

  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced

  • 4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

  • 2 Shallots, sliced

  • 1 Tablespoon Veg Oil

  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar

  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Chilli Flakes (optional)

  • 1 Bunch Coriander, chopped (optional)


  1. Combine the beef, half the soy sauce, chilli, chopped garlic and half the coriander to a bowl and mix well. Then with your hands, make around 20 meatballs, pop them in the fridge to firm up for 5 mins.

  2. Heat a large non-stick pan with the veg oil, when hot add the meatballs and cook evenly until brown all over. Then cover and continue to cook for around 5 mins more. Once done, transfer to a plate and reserve the meat juices in the pan for the next step.

  3. Add the shallots to the pan with the meat juice, cook for around 1 min, reduce the heat then add the remaining soy and sugar, mix well. Turn the heat off then add the juice from 1 lime.

  4. Next add the lettuce, cucumber and carrot to a large bowl, drizzle over the shallot and lime dressing and toss well.

  5. Serve the salad on plates with the meatballs, remaining lime wedges and coriander sprinkled on top!
