Strawberry-Blue Cheese Steak Salad

Contributed By: Parker


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 to 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-sized 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.

Helpful Hints:

At lunch one day, a friend 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 tangy dressing!
