    I'm going to grill some pieces of tri-tip (from Costco, they're shaped like logs, about 2 inch square section) after rubbing them with chili. 

    Serving salsa made with mangoes, avocados, red bell pepper, mint, coriander, fish sauce/lime/palm sugar. Maybe some cucumber for texture...

    And then what else? My brain is going toward rice or potatoes, but that's boring... 

    Hmmm maybe some rice noodles dressed with toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds?

    I think I got it: forget the rice noodles, I'll made a soba noodle salad, dressed with soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, and sesame seeds.

    I'm going to keep it simple as there will be an avocado/mango/red onion/cucumber/red bell pepper salad with fish sauce/lime/palm sugar dressing. The soba noodle salad will have a simple toasted sesame oil & soy sauce dressing, and a little black sesame seeds.

    True dat. Sometimes. 

    Ok so I'm complicating it a little bit using both white and black sesame seeds. But that's mainly for looks. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif
