Green papaya salad with pork belly, prawn and Nuoc cham dressing (* V & GF optional)

This is a traditional dish from the North Part of Vietnam. Nước chấm sauce is a common name for a variety of Vietnamesedipping sauces” that are served quite frequently as condiments. It is commonly a sweet, sour, salty, savoury and/or spicy sauce.

Here at Howard Vineyard, we love this dish — it’s fresh, light, full of herbs from our garden and pretty easy to make. Match with a crisp Howard Vineyard Picnic 100% Cabernet Franc Rose.

Dry in style, lovely an fresh, crisp acidity to pair with the salad, but enough to cut through the fatty pork belly and creamy prawns mix with live music at out cellar door. Perfect Summer Combo!
