Thai Roast Beef Salad

by Edwan S. on Wed, February 10, 2016

This is a gorgeous salad that is fresh and filling to boot. Tender slices of roast beef are topped with a crunchy cucumber salad dressed in an amazing Thai-inspired dressing. Spicy and infinitely delicious, it’s a perfect way to use up leftover roast beef. Heck, just roast a hunk of beef for the sake of this. It’s that good.

Fresh and full of flavour!

Serves 2 - 3 people

Don't like beef? Sear some chicken breasts instead. Prawns work wonderful with the salad too.

Use Thai palm sugar for the best taste. It's honey-brown in colour and softer than gula melaka.
