Chicken breast meat - poached and shredded
Prawns - boiled and cut.
Shallots - thinly sliced and browned till crispy
Carrots - Shredded
Pickled young Mango/Papaya (optional) - not the ripe fruits as they are mushy.

4 cloves garlic - minced
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 bunga kantan ( torch ginger bud) - thinly sliced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp fish sauce or light soy sauce

1. Prepare and place all salad ingredients in a bowl. For dressing, simmer all the ingredients together in a saucepan for about 5 minutes till sugar dissolves. Leave dressing to cool.
