My friend Sheila had a girls night out a while back and made this amazing flank steak salad for us. It is amazing to me how Sheila can just whip up the best tasting food with what looks to me like so little effort. We can just be talking about one ingredient and she will then start throwing out other ingredients to pair with it and it makes you want to go out and try it right then!
This salad was so good. The flavors together just melded so well and gave this a special kick. It all just works. And one you can make it quickly and enjoy during this hot hot weather.
