Salad with Almond Sauce Salad Dressing

Asian Marinated Flank Steak with Almond Dressing.jpg

I am not typically a steak person. In fact, there were about three years of my life where I did not eat any red meat at all. Then, I ate it sparingly. Now I eat it on occasion as an accent to our meal. I love peanut dressing but I like it even better when I make it using almonds instead. I think it adds a deeper flavor.

This flank steak has an Asian flare and pairs perfectly with the mango, avocado, toasted almonds, green onions, and cilantro. Every bite brings a punch of flavor with very little dressing.

This is one of the tastiest salads that I have ever eaten. It is fruity, and rich, and very filling. I can only imagine how much better it will be in the summer.
