I know, two salads in one week.  It's summer, so this is allowed.  I first saw this recipe on this blog.  I was having people over for dinner, so I decided it would be a great summer meal to serve.  When it is so hot outside, the last thing I want to eat is a hot, heavy meal.  I already feel 10 pounds overweight from the heat as it is.  This salad is so fresh and full of lot's of yummy flavor.  The fresh ginger is one of the best parts.  I used an organic spring salad mix from Costco. For the cut of meat, I used sirloin.  I marinated it all day long and let me tell you, it was totally worth the little effort.  The steak literally melts in your mouth.
