This is great steak salad recipe. Can't seem to get enough of that tangy dressing!

Prep/Total Time     : 30 mins.

Servings                : 4


·         1 beef top sirloin steak (3/4 inch thick and 1 pound)
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
·         1/4 teaspoon pepper
·         2 teaspoons olive oil
·         2 tablespoons lime juice

·         1 bunch romaine, torn (about 10 cups)
·         2 cups fresh strawberries, halved
·         1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
·         1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
·         1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
·         Reduced-fat balsamic vinaigrette


1.   Season steak with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add steak; cook 5-7 minutes on each side until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Remove from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak into bite-size strips; toss with lime juice.
2.  On a platter, combine romaine, strawberries and onion; top with steak. Sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Serve with vinaigrette.

Editor's Note
·    To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
