Excellent salad. I would suggest using the steak shortly after slicing i left it to cool and it became a little dry but the dressing was delish and helped that

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Heat a large ovenproof stainless-steel skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle both sides of steak evenly with salt and pepper. Add steak to pan; saute 5 minutes or until browned. Turn steak over. Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes or until a thermometer registers 135 degrees or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steak from pan; let stand 10 minutes. Slice across the grain.
  2. Combine soy sauce and next 5 ingredients (through chile paste), stirring well. Separately combine basil and remaining ingredients. Drizzle dressing mixture over basil mixture; toss gently. Divide salad mixture evenly among 4 plates; divide beef evenly among salads.
