Asian Beef Salad with Soy Honey Sauce

This is an awesome recipe that we found in Men's Health magazine last month.  We tried it out during the week and found it to be a great success!  I am always up for spicing up a salad and adding some lean beef into the mix is a great idea.

1lb flank steak (or the leanest cut you can find in your supermarket
Salt and pepper to taste
2t honey (we used agave nectar)
1t hot sauce (you can use Tabasco, siriracha or any other kind you like)
1/2 t low sodium soy sauce
Juice of one lime
1/4 canola oil
1bag of watercress or other lettuce
1pint of cherry tomatoes
1 small red onion
1 avocado
1/2 cucumber

All you need to do is cook the steak through on the grill and then dice into small bite sized pieces.  Then while the beef is cooking, or at least simmering, make up your sauce with the honey, hot sauce, lime juice and a pinch of pepper.  Prepare the other ingredients as you usually would with a salad to taste, combine and then you are done!

This was merely the first spoonful that went onto my plate.  The addition of beef into the salad made sure it was a hearty meal and left me feeling fuller for longer after a usual salad.  I am definitely going to play around with this recipe and sauce and try a few modifications.  I have been inspired to create more warm salads ;)  I hope you have too!
