Steak and Ramen Salad with Peanut Dressing


Want a big bite of this pretty, colorful tasty salad? I would love some. This salad is fresh, filling, and full of bold flavors.

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I am 100% obsessed with peanut butter. I could eat peanut butter with any meal, any time. One of my current obsessions is fresh spring rolls with spicy peanut dipping sauces. This salad is a bit of a spin on a deconstructed spring roll.

Crispy crunchy romaine lettuce, purple cabbage, cucumbers, edamame, carrots and celery are an essential place to start. Juicy grilled steak gives this salad some oomph. Sesame peanut dressing is the grand finale - creamy with a little bit of tang and spice. This is the dressing to end all dressings. In fact, this salad is so delicious and wholesome, you won't even feel like you're having a salad. Yes, it is THAT satisfying!

OH did I mention that we are going to crumble up a bit of uncooked ramen noodles and sprinkle them on top of the salad? Well, we are. And it's fantastic.

P.S. Sorry about the quality of these photos. I really wanted to share this recipe with you but my good camera's battery was exhausted! These are straight from my iPhone. This meal is worth it though - trust me!
