This sounds perfect -- I love the combination of beef, lime, mint and chili.


When it gets hot outside, I love big salad dinners! I'm also pretty fond of the Vietnamese chicken incarnation as well.


Snort! You made my morning with your description of a panty-less appetite run amok - I'm picturing it capering about with a handful of whipped cream in one hand and a great wheel of cheese under the other arm with a wild grin on its chocolate-smeared face! Hilarious. Thank you. I SO needed that - I continue to be the very picture of malcontent this week, with no end in sight.

Also, this salad looks terrific, though I don't eat meat; I think I'll try it with grilled portobellos. Mmmm.

Hello to the kitties and the squirrelies!


"rehab" *lol*
Me too, once in "party mode", won't hold back on fat and sugar. So now I join you for the rehab, esp it's so pretty!

phenomenal presentation. love it! i need to detox a bit too. carb fest lately.


It does sound perfect. I'd sub splenda for the brown sugar and I'm there!


I just read an interview with Hugh Grant the other day where he asked all women to mail him their panties. THAT's where your panties went, isn't it? You can tell us. Mine are packaged to mail to him today. You beat me to it.

You know, I've been looking at the substituting Splenda/Splenda brown sugar thing on my diet to try to save some calories where I can. I have, at times subbed Splenda for half the sugar in dessert recipes and I can live with that. but Splenda is expensive. I think I'm too cheap to worry about subbing 2 tsps of expensive Splenda for cheap regular old brown sugar when, in recipes like this, where we're talking about 7.5 calories once you divide it by four servings. That's the calories in half a single lifesaver.

But that's just me. I can be monstrously frivolous or fabulously cheap. There doesn't seem to be an in between.


agh, toying with my emotions!! I'm so close, so close! to the end of Meat-Free March! I can't wait... I just want to bury my head in a pot of chili, or choucroute or something delicious and meaty, and here you go, making meat not only look, and sound delicious, but healthy to boot!
Curse you Sher ;-)

I think you might want to consider subtitling your blog: What did you eat? And where are your panties?

I say a big Yes to this salad. Sounds totally delicious!



Yes. that's become one of my favorites too!


Yes--a salad dinner is really nice. It makes me feel pretty good about myself afterwards.


You're so funny Anne! Now I have that image in my brain! I know all about being malcontent!


Sooner or later it happens to all of us!! We party too much--and have to go to calorie rehab!


Hugh! He has my panties? Cheeky devil! :):)


Thank you, it is very good!


You've done such a good job. April is so close! Then you can plunge into the meat dishes!


Now I have to make that logo! It's perfect! :):)Hee!


Thank you!!! It was darn good. Still prefer the chicken version. :)


Sher, the Vietnamese Chicken Salad is always on our menu at home! I have been eating it since childhood and it is truly my comfort food. The beef version sounds nice, too. :)


oooooooh. I'm officially missing warm salads. And it was rainy today. Looks yummmyy.=)


You are too funny! I think I need to spend some serious time in the rehab room! What a fun idea!
Salad looks very helpful!
