Lime Cilantro & Jalapeño Salad ((serve with curry…if you please))

Lime Cilantro & Jalapeño Salad ((serve with curry…if you please))

I recently invented the wheel. It was hard but somebody had to do it…Life will be so much brighter & simpler for all of humanity. Okay, as you know, I did no such thing – but even three days later, I am still beaming about the recipe I created: Thai Buttermilk Curry & Apricot Glazed Grilled Flap Steak. It came from a combination of no time & necessity.

I challenge you to try this recipe, whether on chicken, beef, fish, pork or portabella mushrooms — this simple marinade will make your eyes bulge and your tastebuds two-step. But, before you take your first bite, let me share with you an important garnish to this meal.

When lime & cilantro meet curry magic happens – yes, curry is so good by itself. But, the next time you go Thai or Indian…toss together this simple salad. I am sure it won’t disappoint!

Lime Cilantro & Jalapeño Salad
Flash-pickled veggies are the perfect accessory to beef curry (or any other protein) - the addition lime, cilantro and jalapeño complete this meal!
