Add grilled steak to a bed of watercress and vegetables and toss with a tangy homemade dressing for a hearty main-dish salad.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

To prepare salad, place the beef on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill 7 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut the steak diagonally across grain into thin slices. Place beef in a large bowl.

Step 3

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; add beans. Cover and cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Rinse with cold water; drain well. Add beans, watercress, tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, and hearts of palm to beef, and toss gently to combine.

Step 4

To prepare dressing, combine red wine vinegar and remaining ingredients, stirring well with a whisk. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss gently to coat.

Chef's Notes

Excellent. My husband did not expect to like a salad made with meat, but said this recipe is "really good." From him that's a rave. As usual with your recipes I had to reduce the amount of vinegar in half; I used leaf lettuce because that's what I had; and substituted avocado for hearts of palm for the same reason. I also used leftover roast beef, sliced thin, which worked perfectly. A total success, even with those changes.

I loved this salad and so did my husband, who went back for seconds. However, I added a few special touches. I added a 14 oz. can of hearts of palm (instead of 7.5 oz.), and a container of feta cheese. I also used two boneless top loin steaks because they were on sale. I covered them in olive oil and coated them with salt, pepper, oregano, rosemary, garlic and basil and let them marinate for 30 miutes in the herbs before grilling. Yum, Yum. I will make this again.

Fantastic! So incredibly easy and quick and is on par with any great salad from an upscale restaurant . . . Not to mention how great you feel eating such good-for-you foods.

This is the best salad I have ever tasted. I had to make the dressing with white wine vinegar instead, and it was super. This was a very light, simple, and delicious meal.
