We really loved this for our lunch just now. I made a half recipe but used all the marinade/dressing and I'm so glad I did! The salad was just moistened, not swimming in dressing and I think it would have been a dry old affair if I hadn't used the extra. I am not a huge fan of celery I can see in a dish (pureed in a soup is OK), so left it out and put in red capsicum (bell pepper) and finely sliced red onion in it's place. I garnished with some little tomatoes to get in some extra veg.
A nicely different taste! I seared 2 thick sirloin steaks for this. I also like the versatility of the recipe: left out the celery and cilantro, which we're not very fond of. But I can see one can ring the changes with the salad ingredients. Dee, I added some finely chopped ginger and a small amount of hot pepper flakes to the marinade. Otherwise, I followed your recipe except had to use dry sherry as I did not have sake. Thanks for a great recipe ... will make this again in our summer -- a large platter of it!
