Steak and Radish Salad with Wasabi Dressing

Ok so I bet you all have had enough hiking stories and are ready for some more food, am I right? Well here you are! A food post!

I remember the first time I saw this salad in Marie Claire Seasonal Kitchen, my favorite cookbook. I knew right away I just had to make it! So I did, and I loved it!

Unfortunately, I forgot about it until a few weeks ago. I had quite a few radishes from my garden that needed eating, and as I was sifting through my recipe lists, I came across it again.

The recipe has a tangy, but spicy wasabi dressing drizzled over sliced radishes, cucumber ribbons and thinly sliced steak. I call it the souped up version of a steak salad. Yum yum!
