Easy to make delicious bites size treats, my Vietnamese Inspired Beef Salad Bites are packed full of flavour and healthy too.

These little bite size treats full of flavour and a good fieriness from the chillies. They are perhaps one of my favourite things to eat ever. The mindfulness eating opportunities from this dinner are fantastic. From the crunchy lettuce, the hot steak, the smell of the herbs to the spicy and cool chilli dipping sauce you will never be able to eat just one.

It’s such a beautiful dish and on a white plate the colours just pop out. As they can be made in advanced if you don’t mind cooler steak, or made when hot they can be customised to taste. I love the fresh chilli and radish for the fieriness in mine. Tomatoes add a juiciness to the steak in the lettuce wrap.

Using the lettuce leaves to wrap the precious ingredients in makes it quick and easy to make but also reduces the washing up too. It’s also nice when they’re being served as a canapé as you don’t need to provide a plate.

This dish makes me so happy. The colours, the taste and the ease of creating a dish which is so healthy and fresh too.
Don’t you just want to pick one out of the photo and try it?!

    These look so good! I’d be happy with a whole plate of them for dinner although they would be great for parties too.

      I think that is why they are so good, so versatile and brilliant for parties but also worth making to enjoy alone with a movie.
