Thai Beef Salad

1 packet Ranch Dressing Mix
3/4 cup mayo
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 lb thinly sliced roast beef
1 cucumber, sliced
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1 cup sliced bamboo shoots
1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Combine mayo, coconut milk, dressing mix and lime juice in small bowl or jar; chill at least 30 mins. Arrange beef, cucumber, cilantro and bamboo shoots on a large platter. Pour dressing in a thin stream over salad. Sprinkle with peanuts.

I used left over roast from the cross rib roast for this and it was great. I also had to substitute water chestnuts for the bamboo because the store was out, and I used light coconut milk to cut down on fat and calories and it worked great (and then I used the left over coconut milk in a smoothie mmm mmm good). Also we halved the dressing recipe and still had some leftover. I also added more salad greens to the salad served it with bread sticks. It was pretty tasty!
