  1. In a large bowl, stir together the green onions, lemon grass, cilantro, mint leaves, lime juice, fish sauce, chili sauce and sugar until well combined and the sugar is dissolved. Adjust the flavor, if desired, by adding more sugar and/or fish sauce. Set aside.
  2. Cook the steak over high heat on a preheated grill for approximately 4-6 minutes on each side, until it is cooked medium. Do not overcook the meat! Remove from heat and slice into thin strips. Add the meat and its juices to the sauce and refrigerate, tightly covered, for at least 3 hours.
  3. Tear the lettuce into bite size pieces and place in a salad bowl. Arrange the cucumber on top of the lettuce, and then pour the meat and sauce over. Top with the cherry tomatoes and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.

This is VERY Thai...too much so for me. I didn't care for the fishy taste or the strong mint flavor. My husband really liked it though. I don't think I will be making this one again.

I've made this Thai Salad the last three to four years for my work Holiday Luncheon. It's always a huge hit. My only suggestion is that I like to substitute soy sauce instead of fish sauce as it...
