Mint Meal 2: Flank Steak with Thai Summer Salad

It’s the middle of winter, but there is no better time to grill a steak and enjoy a refreshing summer salad.  I found the recipe on the Whole Foods website and discovered a really great recipe database.

Flank steak and Thai summer salad

The steak marinade included:

  • Lime juice
  • Hoisin sauce (instead of fish sauce)
  • Reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Sugar
  • Chopped shallot

The summer salad included:

  • Baby bok choy
  • Radishes
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Fresh cilantro leaves

It was so, so good!  We paired the steak and salad with some potatoes and the whole meal was quite tasty as leftovers.  Expect this to be a regular on our menus once the weather warms up!
