Grilled Thai Beef Salad with Sesame Lime Vinaigrette| #soletspigout #salad #summer #glutenfree #paleo #primal The #SoLetsPigOut Potluck is still in full effect. Yup, it’s still that week where we’re hanging out with The Pig & Quill and getting our pigout on, potluck style!  The week keeps chugging right along with all of it’s fun recipes and prizes!

Speaking of chugging, did you check out yesterday’s post for Herbed Pineapple Limeade? Totally chug  worthy.  Oh, and I’m still not over those Sticky BBQ Korean Chicken Wings from Monday either.

It’s not truly summer unless you’ve allowed yourself to get good and sticky with a chicken wing. I’m not sure that’s a real rule, but it should be. Let’s write our own rule book. I propose that pants should be optional. It’s summer. It’s hot. You know I’m right.

Grilled Thai Beef Salad with Sesame Lime Vinaigrette| #soletspigout #salad #summer #glutenfree #paleo #primal Today Em and I are sharing a recipe for this glorious steak salad. We’ve loaded it with veggies and tons of Asian flavors. We’ve topped it with grilled steak, some peanuts and a sassy honey lime dressing. Can I just get honest with you for a minute and talk about how much I love steak? I know, I know. We’ve been over it before. But really, it’s my spirit food (I really hope that doesn’t imply dead spirit animals-because, no). This steak is marinated to perfection. I want to eat it for breakfast. Out of the fridge. Cold. With my hands. Oh, wait…I did. Yeah, I’m an animal. Also, it’s really hard to eat salad with your hands and still look like a lady. Just ask my husband (who’s Dutch and uses a knife and fork for EVERYTHING). Luckily for me, Emily was just as into this salad as I was. We feverishly ate the remains of the steak off of a cutting board before it even made it to the photos.

If you notice, she is precariously balanced on my desk, hanging on by her ninja kneecaps. Things usually look something like this behind the scenes. #SoLetsPigOut could have quickly become #SoLetsBreakOurNecksShootingSalad. But, this is just another day in the office. One time I fell into a glass table while shooting granola. Those are the moments that make you question your life decisions. As I shot this photo, Emily made sure to crack a joke we’re pretty much doing THIS.  Accurate.

Grilled Thai Beef Salad with Sesame Lime Vinaigrette| #soletspigout #salad #summer #glutenfree #paleo #primal As you can imagine, all of that table climbing works up a bit of an appetite.  We ate enough salad for four-six adult humans. To be clear, we are only two adult humans. You should totally invite us to your real life summer potluck. We’ll eat all your food. Promise.
