Steak & Fresh Fruit Salad

By: The Food Hunter

As the days become shorter and busier, my meals get increasingly easier. And for me there is nothing easier than throwing together a delicious protein-packed salad. A variety of fruits & veggies and good quality meat are all it takes to have a healthy meal on the table in minutes. 

I used cherries in the recipe below but this salad is delicious with mango too! I encourage you to use what is in season at your local market

Steak & Fresh Fruit Salad

One 10 ounce sirloin steak
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

3 small shallots, thinly sliced

1 jalapeño—stemmed, seeded and minced

1 garlic clove, minced

6 celery ribs, thinly sliced, plus leaves for garnish

2 cups sweet cherries, pitted and halved (10 ounces)

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Brush the steaks with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, turning, until browned on the outside and still rare inside. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice against the grain.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the ½ cup of olive oil with the lime juice, sliced shallots, jalapeño and garlic. Season the dressing with salt and pepper. 

In a large bowl, toss the steak with the sliced celery, cherries and half of the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with celery leaves. Serve; pass more dressing at the table
