I've been making this salad for years - I think since @1998. It is one of the most-requested meals in my house by family and guests. So simple, light, and fresh!
This salad is awesome! The dressing alone is awesome! I made this a few times now and every time my hubby rants about it. I never have lemongrass on hand so I leave it out. I don't know if it makes a big difference or not. Be sure not to over cook the beef, 5 or six minutes on each side works out fine on my grill. I think I may just turn this salad into a sandwich on ciabatta some day. Seriously, you need to try this. There are so many flavors going on it makes your mouth sing.
This was very good. I cut the amount of lime juice in half for personal preference. I wasn't sure about adding the lemongrass, but it was definitely worth putting in. I used cilantro instead of mint since I didn't have any, used half cabbage and half romaine and left out the tomatoes. Next time I will add shredded carrots. Very tasty.
