At lunch with a friend one day, she told me about a steak salad she'd had at a party. It sounded so fantastic, I had to try it for myself. My family would eat it nonstop if we could. Can't seem to get enough of that twangy dressing! —Alma Winberry, Great Falls, Montana

Ingredients

  • 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
  • SALAD:
  • 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

Directions

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 145°; medium, 160°). Remove from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak into bite-size strips; toss with lime juice.
On a platter, combine romaine, strawberries and onion; top with steak. Sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Serve with vinaigrette. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
Health Tip: If you’re looking to trim calories, leave off the walnuts and blue cheese; they’re adding almost 40 calories per serving.

"I do not usually care for fruit in my salad, but this one is delicious! I have also substituted feta cheese for the blue cheese, and it is equally as tasty."
