Vietnamese Salad and Dressing

This refreshing salad is great for summer. It's light, fresh, and delicious!! The thing to keep in mind is to have all your ingredients FRESH! This of course is a salad and if anything is old, you will definitely taste it! I used the mint and cilantro from my mini-garden!

I usually prepare the marinated beef/chicken ahead of time to save time. Once you're ready to prepare the salad, just stir fry the meat quickly on high heat in a wok. While cooking you can prepare the salad. Once the meat is cooked, place it on top of the prepared salad and enjoy with the dressing. The dressing is very light as well and add as much or as little as you want to your Fresh Summer Vietnamese Salad.

3 heads of Romaine Lettuce, torn up into bite size pieces, washed and spun dried
