This is very tasty. I did not cook my steak from scratch, but instead used some leftover New York Strip that was sitting in my fridge. Instead of red chiles, I used a dash of sambal olek and it was delightfully spicy. Overall, very delicious and easy to make! Made for ZWT 3.

Wow! The dressing really makes this salad. It's spicy and so flavorful. I loved it. It did take more than 15 minutes from start to finish with grilling the beef, but still pretty quick and definitely worth every minute.
