Red Hot Dressing for Thai Beef Salad

Lemon or lime juice
Nam pla (Thai fish sauce)
Soy sauce
Worcestershire sauce
Prepared mustard (optional)
Hot pepper flakes or hot sauce
Salad oil

I never seem to measure salad dressing ingredients, so I can’t tell you how much of each. The first 8 ingredients should be about half the liquid, and the salad oil should be the other half.

Salad 1:
From “Desperations Dinners”: Sliced roast beef, cucumber, mint or cilantro, and greens.

Salad 2 (my version of Thai “Yum Neau”):
Roast beef, beefsteak tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion.
