Enjoy your refreshing summer salad from our friends at Whole Foods


  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 Thai chiles, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 pounds skirt steak or sirloin flap, cut in 2 pieces
  • 4 cups thinly sliced baby bok choy
  • 6 radishes, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 small cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed basil leaves, sliced
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed mint leaves, sliced
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves, sliced


Whisk together lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, shallot and chiles. Place half of mixture (about 6 tablespoons) in a wide shallow dish and add steak. Cover and marinate, turning occasionally, at least 30 minutes. Chill remaining lime juice mixture separately to dress the salad.

Prepare a grill for high-heat cooking or preheat broiler. Remove steak from marinade; place on grill or broiler pan and cook until desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Rest steak 10 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine bok choy, radishes, cucumbers, carrots, basil, mint and cilantro. Toss with reserved lime juice mixture. Spread salad over a large platter and arrange steak over salad.
