Thai Beef Salad with Lime Dressing

Posted on

Ditch the delivery in favor of a light and refreshing recipe for Thai Beef Salad with Lime Dressing.
Thin crust pizza, soup dumplings and chicken tikka masala all have their spots on my Takeout Hall of Fame roster. But when it comes to getting food delivered to my door, I just can’t wrap my mind around ordering a salad.

Call me crazy, but raw veggies are best straight from the fridge crisper drawer, when they’re ice-cold and oh-so-fresh.
And that leads me to this lettuce-less take on a traditional Thai Beef Salad starring your steak cut-of-choice, cucumber, fresh herbs and toasted peanuts, all tossed in a citrusy, sweet lime dressing.
But before we get to assembly, would you check out that meat?!

Your choice of a ribeye or top sirloin steak is marinated in the perfect mix of lime juice, brown sugar and soy sauce to complete the sour-sweet-salty trifecta.

If you look closely, you’ll notice there’s not a lettuce leaf in sight. Cucumbers, shallots, tomatoes, cilantro and mint make up the base of this spruced up Thai Beef Salad, where the tender slices of beef are tossed together with the dressing to ensure they soak up every ounce of flavor.
