  • 400g sliced cucumber
  • 4 fresh chillies, thinly sliced (seeds removed)

  • 250g grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup fresh coriander (cilantro ) leaves

  1. In a bowl, coat the beef in half of the lemon and lime juice, and allow to marinate overnight in the fridge.
  2. Drain the beef, and throw away the juice.
  3. Barbeque the beef until it’s cooked to your liking (or cook on the stove or under the grill).
  4. Allow the beef to rest for a few minutes, then slice thinly.
  5. In a bowl, mix the cucumber, chili, onions, tomatoes and fresh herbs. In a jar, add the remaining juice, the coconut aminos and garlic and shake thoroughly to mix.
  6. Add the beef and dressing to the salad mix and toss to ensure it is well mixed in.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
