Grilled Thai Steak Salad

Grilled Thai Steak Salad 4.50/5 (4 votes)

I'm in love with this salad, particularly the dressing! It is amazing and surprisingly not spicy at all, even with the Serrano pepper. I ended up adding a squeeze of Sriracha to amp it up a bit. It also acts as a super quick flavor enhancer for the steak. Typically we would use a dressing as a marinade, but this time we brush it onto the steak as it cooks - works great and uses substantially less. Enjoy!
