Thai Beef Green Salad

Who says your salad has to be boring?!  Wake up your taste buds with my Thai Beef Green Salad.  The dressing is SO good.  And it also acts as the marinade, so you only have to do the work once!  Make the dressing and marinate the steak the night before and you have a quick and easy weeknight meal.  All you have to do is grill the steak, chop up the shallot and herbs and toss the salad!  It’s that easy.

Combine 1 Tbsp of lime juice, coconut aminos (sou sauce), olive oil, honey, ginger and red curry paste in a small bowl.  Mix to combine.  Pat the steak dry and poor half of the mixture into a ziplock bag with the meat.  Add the remaining 2 Tbsp of lime juice and let the flavors marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.  Reserve the rest of the mixture in the fridge for the dressing.

Spray the grill or grill pan with nonstick spray and preheat.  Grill the steak to medium-rare (about 5 min per side) or however you prefer your steak done.  Let rest and then thinly slice the steak against the grain.

Combine the lettuce, shallot, cilantro and basil in a bowl.  Toss with salad dressing.

Serve on a platter with the sliced steak.
