To celebrate reaching 500 followers, I'm trying to go back to some of the series I used to have in this blog instead of just posting daily FOTD's. One of my favourite activities is cooking, I think I even enjoy it more than doing my makeup. I get home from work, pour myself a glass of Shiraz and get to it. I feel so much more relaxed by the time I'm done. And hubby loves it too, he says everyone envies his meals at his office lunch table.

Today's recipe is a steak salad. I love me some hearty salad as temperature goes up and this one is one of my all time favourites:


You need to cut an English cucumber in very tiny slices (think noodles) and toss with a chopped jalapeno pepper, juice of one lime and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Then add 1/2 of red onion, 8-oz of bean sprouts and 1/2 cup of chopped mint. Toss the salad and add salt and pepper. Grill a 10-oz sirloin steak on the grilles which is marinated with some oyster sauce. Once cooked, cut the steak into thin slices and serve on top of the cucumber salad, voila!

What are some of your favourite summer dishes?
