This is a perfect way to use up cooked leftover roast meat or, if you are starting from scratch, cut 400 g/14 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts or pork fillet into thin strips. Fry in 1 tbsp sunflower oil for 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Add 1 tbsp light soy sauce and cook briefly until golden. When making the dressing, replace 1 tbsp rice vinegar with 1 tbsp fish sauce. Serve sprinkled with 70 g/ oz/¾ cup chopped salted peanuts in place of the cashews.
