Incredible Beef Thai Salad

Wow. That's all I have to say. Every bite is a party of flavor. Wow. :)

Thai Salad

1 lbs. Beef, cooked and cut into strips (I cooked mine in 1 Tbsp. Canola oil, 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, fresh ground pepper to taste, and 1 garlic clove in a frying pan)
1 bag of spinach leaves, rinsed
1 mango, diced
1 red pepper, cut julienne
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 onion or shallots
1 avocado, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/3 c. fresh mint, chopped
1/2 c. fresh basil, chopped
1/2 c. fresh cilantro
1 c. bean sprouts
4 oz. water chestnuts

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients, toss. Mix together dressing (see recipe below) and add to salad.

1/4 c. lime juice
Splash of fish sauce (optional- LOTS of sodium, so be conservative)
Splash of soy sauce (optional- again on the sodium)
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp. minced ginger
Freshly ground pepper to taste

I got the idea of this (mine is slightly different) from here.
