Thai Beef Salad

Top Review by AWinPA

I made a few changes: used only romaine lettuce, added very thinly sliced red & yellow bell pepper (used 1/2 of each--they were very large peppers) and some matchstick carrots. The color and taste of these veggies is worth it. I also added just under 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint. I used only one tomato. I was remembering another recipe I used to have for this dish, which had the above items. I always loved it, but my husband did not. After making this version with the changes above, we found one that we both like. Thanks for sharing; it's a keeper!
