  • Serving: 4

Ingredients

Dressing:
canola oil


lime zest


lime juice


honey


EACH grainy Dijon mustard and chili powder


EACH salt and freshly ground black pepper



Salad
cubed watermelon


chopped cucumber


shelled edamame


thinly sliced red onion


radishes, very thinly sliced


jalapeno, thinly sliced (optional)


crumbled feta


lb (500 g) Grilling Steak (Top Sirloin Cap, Strip Loin or Rib Eye), about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick


Rice
cooked brown rice, warm


finely chopped cilantro or green onion

Directions

Dressing

Whisk canola oil with lime zest, lime juice, honey, mustard, chili powder, salt and pepper. Measure out 1/4 cup dressing and set aside.

Salad

Toss watermelon with cucumber, edamame, onion, jalapeno (if using) and radish with remaining dressing. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high heat; grease grates well. Pat steak dry with paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Brush 2 tbsp dressing all over steak.
Grill, turning at least twice, for 8 to 10 minutes or until an instant read thermometer registers 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare when inserted sideways into steak. Transfer to a plate and loosely tent with foil. Rest for 5 minutes.

Rice

Toss warm rice with cilantro and remaining 2 tbsp dressing. Divide evenly among 4 plates. Arrange a bed of arugula on each plate. Top with watermelon salad and drizzle with any accumulated juices. Sprinkle with feta. Carve steak, against the grain, into thin slices. Arrange steak on plates and drizzle with reserved dressing. Serve with a lime wedge.

Tips

• Steak can also be prepared in a cast-iron skillet or grill pan set over medium-high heat following the same instructions.
• Substitute cooked rice with same amount of cooked quinoa, barley or couscous if you wish.
