Sometimes a menu item takes you right back to an amazing memory. Steak Thai Noodle Salad is exactly one of those items. A few years ago I went to Arizona for a girls’ weekend and it was glorious. There is something about getting away with friends that truly renews my soul. In fact, I haven’t had one in a while so I should probably plan one haha. I feel like now that my kids are so busy it’s harder for me to escape. But that isn’t a good excuse because a weekend away helps me to rejuvenate and then I can be a better mom and wife.
Well on this trip with some lovely friends we went to a restaurant Hillstone and it had the most glorious salad ever. There are a couple things on a menu that I will order automatically. One is Snapper (ooh I love it so) and Thai Salad. I love love love a Steak Thai Noodle Salad. So when I say Thai Noodle and Steak Salad I knew exactly what I would order. HOLY MOLY! This was the best salad I’ve ever had…like ever. It’s amazing. There are multiple locations so if you ever come across one I highly recommend stopping in and trying it out.
When I got home I couldn’t stop thinking about this incredible salad and I started to look for copy cat recipes. Guess what? I found one. And I have altered it to make it my own. Basically I made it easier. The first time I made it was WAY TOO MUCH WORK. I needed to make it easier. I will say this salad has so many ingredients but it’s worth it. I also think you can alter it, just as I did. The important parts are the marinade and the dressing. I double the recipe and save it for later.
When I double the recipe I just put them in pint jars and save them in the fridge. I also have a friend who loves thai salads too so I made her the sauces so she could enjoy without the work. So now go right ahead and check out the recipe and enjoy the heck out of it.
