BBQ Rainbow Beef Salad

Who doesn’t love a barbecue in Summer? But who doesn’t get fed up of the same old burgers and sausages? And not only that, they tend to be high calories, making it difficult for those watching what they are eating. Your barbecues will never be boring again when this steak is on the menu.  This sizzling steak salad tastes just amazing, with the Asian-inspired salad dressing. And to top it off it will be well within anyone’s calories, leaving some room for a cheeky glass of wine.
