Look for prewashed packages of Asian-style salad mixes at your supermarket--their peppery, exotic character is great with this full-flavored steak and dressing. Look for fiber- and protein-rich edamame (green soybeans) in the frozen vegetables section of your supermarket. Use the leftover dressing for any salad later in the week.

  • To prepare the salad: Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper. Coat a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat. Add the steak and cook about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

  • Combine greens, snow peas, bell pepper, cabbage, cilantro, edamame and 1/4 cup Sesame Tamari Vinaigrette in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Divide between 2 plates. Top with the steak. (Refrigerate leftover vinaigrette.)

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the dressing (Step 1) for up to 3 days.

This is a great salad recipe! I substituted shredded carrots for cabbage (just a personal preference). I might marinate the steak next time to give the meat a little more flavor. Read More
