More than just leafy greens, this steak salad has the substantial staying-power of beef. Use a Fast-fry Marinating Steak that cooks in just minutes or a Flank steak that can be either pan-fried or grilled.
10 Minutes

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings


⅓ cup canola oil

⅓ cup cider or white wine vinegar

2 tbsp strawberry jam, warmed or mango chutney

1 tbsp liquid honey

½ tsp grainy Dijon mustard

2 green onions, minced

Salt and pepper

1 lb (500 g) Beef Flank Marinating Steak, or Fast-fry Inside Round Steak (1/4-inch thick)

1 medium mango or peach, peeled and sliced into wedges (optional)

12 large strawberries (room temperature or roasted*), quartered

6 cup mixed baby lettuce greens

1 stalk celery, diced

1/2 Spanish or sweet onion, diced


To make dressing/marinade: In 1 cup glass measuring cup, combine oil, vinegar, warmed jam, honey, mustard, green onion; season with salt and pepper to taste. Place half in sealable freezer bag; set aside remaining mixture as dressing.

Pierce steak several times with fork. Add steak to bag; seal tightly and refrigerate, for 30 to 60 minutes.

Discard marinade. Pat steak dry with paper towel and season lightly with salt. Pan-fry in a lightly oiled heavy non-stick or cast iron fry pan that has been heated over medium-high heat. Cook, 1 minute for the fast-fry steak or 4 minutes for the flank. Flip steak; cook another minute for the Fast-fry or 4 to 5 minutes for the Flank. Allow to rest for 1 to 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, divide salad greens, mango (if using), berries, celery and diced onion among 4 plates. Carve steak across the grain and top each salad. Drizzle each with a portion of the reserved dressing.

*Roasted Strawberries

To accentuate the flavour in winter strawberries, bring to room temperature or roast. To roast, toss large strawberries with a splash of canola oil on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar and roast in a 350F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until fragrant and just starting to exude juice. Allow to cool before serving.
