Quick Thai Beef Salad

  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4

We love this pungent, tangy salad because it is astonishingly fast to make. Other versions of this recipe require you to marinate and cook the meat, which can take hours; this variation (which appeared in F&W in May 2002) calls for store-bought roast beef instead.
