Ingredients

  • ¾ lb. sirloin steak (or cut of your choice)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • ¾ tsp salt, divided
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 corn tortillas, cut into strips*
  • 4 cups spring greens or lettuce mix of your choice
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • ½ small red onion, sliced thinly
  • cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Lemon dressing (recipe below), or dressing of your choice

Lemon Dressing

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Pre-heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Rub ½ Tbsp olive oil on both sides of steak and sprinkle and rub ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper onto both sides.
  • Place steak on grill or grill pan and cook for about 4 minutes on each side until desired degree of doneness (I like to cook to medium rare, which should register at 140 degrees on a meat thermometer).
  • Remove steak from grill or pan and let stand for 5 minutes. Slice steak against the grain into thin slices.
  • While steak is resting, add remaining 1 Tbsp oil to a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add tortilla strips and let cook for about 2 minutes before flipping and cooking for another minute, until golden and crispy. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ tsp salt.
  • Divide greens between two large salad bowls. Divide strawberries, sliced onions, and blue cheese between bowls and toss together. Top salads with steak, tortilla strips, and lemon dressing.

Lemon Dressing

  • Put all ingredients in a small mason jar and shake well.

Notes

*If you prefer, you can use store-bought  crispy tortilla strips instead of making homemade
