|This cookbook has some of the very dishes we enjoyed while traveling through Vietnam.|
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 c rice wine
3 cloves crushed garlic
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, finally chopped
2 tablespoons crushed peanuts

Combine all ingredients well. Let sit.
|For the dressing|
Back to the squid rings. Place the squid rings in the boiling water for 60-90 seconds. SECONDS is correct. Remove, drain hot water and immediately dump squid rings into the ice water being sure to submerge all pieces.

When thoroughly cooled transfer squid to bowl with dressing and toss thoroughly.
Serve on a bed of crisp greens with a side a bowl of soup or serve with crackers or a favorite bread or as here, with a hot tea. Enjoy.
