This Asian beef salad is full of fresh flavor. From

I had the grandfather of all cheat days yesterday. We met my sister-in-law for lunch at PF Chang’s, one of my very favorite places to carb up. Pork dumplings, spring rolls, hot and sour soup… I could easily eat my way through the menu.

Well, except for the seafood part.

So you know what happened this morning, right? I woke up craving carbs, and especially Asian food. I combat those cravings by keeping the carbs very low for a day. Plus, I am trying to increase my protein intake and, I don’t know about you but it’s really hard for me to eat 120g of protein!

So, I got up and had 3 scrambled eggs with Hatch chiles (yay for Hatch chile season) and cheese. Then I had a protein bar for a snack, and just downed this luscious Asian beef salad for lunch. I ate the whole recipe by myself but you might want to split it in half. The nutrition information is for the whole thing. Maybe I’ll have a protein shake at dinner and that should take care of it — or close to.

I wish someone would come up with a 0-carb, 0-calorie protein drink that tasted like a Watermelon Margarita. Is that too much to ask?

You could serve this over some “cauli-rice” if you wanted to. I like it over the salad because of the crunch factor. Well, that and the fact that sometimes I feel like I am going to turn into a cauliflower because, of course, it’s in nearly every low carb meal.

Asian beef salad has just 7.4 carbs.

Rice vinegar adds a smooth tang to the recipe. I use dried onions because the flavor is more concentrated.
