For a touch of the exotic at home this healthy Thai salad hits the spot. Don't let the list of ingredients daunt you. It's really just meat marinated and cooked and used to dress a big fresh salad with a salad dressing. I could have split the marinade and dressing recipes up into separate recipes to make this look easier but I like to have it all in one place.
Can use any meat in this dish, for exampe chicken breasts or thighs or seafood or a mix. If you do not have coriander or basil the dish with taste great but the blend really makes that bit more authentic and special.
Alternately, mariade whole beef steaks and cook then slice and serve on the salad. This will give a less intense flavouring from the marinade but will enable the meat to be more rare on serving.

I have decided next time I do this recipe I will marinade it longer and marinade the whole piece of beef. Then cook the beef and only slice it after it is cooked and rested. I think it will be more tender and succulent that way. - 25 Nov 2011
Really enjoyed it, marinated beef for 2hrs but will do for longer next time. - 03 Jan 2015
