Great for Newbie Cooks

I am a cooking newbie. Seriously, prior to this meal I mostly heated and microwaved stuff. I made this meal, it was filling and delicious. The only thing I changed was the fancy thing with the zest and dijon. Instead I bought an organic ginger-soy dressing that is olive oil based. I added it to the rub and used it as a light dressing. Saved the rest of the meat for a meal later this week!

Easy to prepare, savory meal!

Following other reader's comments, I doubled the rub, added lemon zest and honey to the dressing and strawberries to the salad. So good! I would also add a little more vinegar to the dressing at some toasted almonds to the salad for a little crunchy texture!

Delicious, easy

Following a reader's comment, I doubled the rub and it was delicious. This will become a regular in our household. Next time I will add fresh strawberries to the salad, adding some sweet to compliment the savory. I will also add a little honey and lemon zest to punch the dressing up a notch. This dish plus a whole wheat baguette was a complete meal, and so easy. Delicious!
