Thai Steak Salad

Thai Steak Salad is one of my favorite salads and is on the top of our must make list.   The salad is great, but I have to give the credit to the dressing, which really makes this salad nothing short of divine.

The dressing is a perfect balance of sweet and tangy; bursting with flavors of ginger, garlic, sesame, and lime juice. 

One of my favorite kitchen tools to make salad dressings is my Chef’n VeggiChop (similarly, I used it to chop up the carrots as well).  I love that this chopper is hand powered.  It gives me complete control over how fine I want the food to be chopped up.  For example, I can blend a salad dressing or do a rough chop with the carrots.  Using the Chef’n VeggiChop, I can make the Thai Salad dressing in under 5 minutes.

The Thai Steak Salad is easy to put together and great for lunch or dinner.  It is crunchy, colorful, and a great blend of sweet, tangy and salty. The dressing is versatile and can be used as  a dip for a vegetable platter (good bye  boring ranch!) 

While I love the salad with steak, you can make a healthier version or go vegetarian by skipping the steak.
