When the cooler weather hits, I still like to have salads, and this is perfect for cooler weather in that you still get plenty of comfort from the noodles and spicy cooked steak. It is a complete meal in a bowl and we know you will love it too.
Citrus come into their own at this time of year for a reason, we need more vitamin C in our diets, so let's call it a winter salad for that reason as well.
Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients, a lot of them are regular pantry items.
