"I love the strong flavors of Thai food, especially the combination of lime juice and beef. This dish is great for company because you can prep all the ingredients ahead, and then everything comes together quickly." -CL Reader

How to Make It
To prepare beef, combine the first 6 ingredients. Rub over beef; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Place beef on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 8 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Cut beef diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
To prepare dressing, combine juice and next 5 ingredients (juice through oil), stirring well with a whisk.
To prepare salad, combine greens and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss gently to coat. Divide salad evenly among 6 plates; top with beef.
This was a fantastic and easy salad. I made half the recipe for two and it was a large serving. We probably ate more meat then the recommende portion - it was outstanding. Served with a whole wheat baguette. Simple, easy meal.
