I make those sometimes. Actually, I haven't made them recently-- thanks for the reminder!! I usually keep the meat to one kind: boiled shrimp, shredded cooked chicken breast or even ham cut into thin strips. As for the vegetables, I use cilantro, lettuce, carrots, red peppers and cucumbers cut into thin juienne strips. That dipping sauce sounds yummy, but when I make them for my family (which includes a 4 year old kid) I put out a Japanese sesame salad dressing since he doesn't like spicy things. Vietnamese fish sauce by itself is also very nice-- though it's extremely salty, so you only need a tiny amount.
I have tried them with veggies like avocado, cucumber, carrots, and sprouts. I made some with shrimp sauteed in garlic. Another time I got a little Chinese beef from the takeout place and put a little in with the veggies.
I haven't made this dipping sauce. I got a Thai sweet chile sauce at the grocery store and I also like just fresh lime squeezed over the veggies.
