Lean flank steak, whole wheat pasta and crisp vegetables make this Asian-inspired salad a healthy choice. Ditching that time-consuming (and all-too-easy-to-forget) step of marinating the meat makes it genius.
*This readily available condiment provides instantly authentic Thai flavor. The clear, reddish-gold liquid is salty, like soy sauce, but has a more distinct funky-fishy aroma. (Don't worry; it is subdued in cooking or when combined with other ingredients.) Find it in the Asian aisle.
