Healthier-Than-You-Think Lean Steak Salad

Sirloin Steak Salad
Sirloin Steak Salad

I want to share this healthy supper with you. It is quick to do as well, taking 45 minutes or so, from start to finish.

This really is my kind of dinner. I love salads. I eat one every day for lunch and I really think that there is something to eating raw foods. I think they provide a very different kind of healthy eating. Heat must surely transform the vitamins and minerals and eating anything that you can in its purist form, raw, must be healthier for you.

We once met with a prospective client who was trying to introduce a raw health bar into the marketplace and wanted our help in packaging and marketing it. Carol Alt, the famous fashion model, was a big devotee of this. So maybe, if I eat enough raw food, I’ll look like her???

I hope you enjoy this. And don’t forget to add LOVE while you’re making it. The world certainly needs a lot more love and you can add to it by making and serving nourishing, healthy meals, filled with love.

Sirloin Steak Salad Recipe


  • 1/2—3/4 of a head of Boston lettuce, washed and spun dry, or use as much lettuce as you like
  • 1 handful of snow peas, cleaned and blanched in boiling water for 1 minute, drained and cooled in ice water and then drained and patted dry
  • 3/4—1 lb. boneless sirloin steak
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled, cut into 1/2″ cubes, tossed with 1 tbs. olive oil, salt and pepper, and roasted in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 35 minutes
  • 1—1/2” piece of daikon radish, peeled and thinly sliced on a mandolin
  • 1/2 of a yellow pepper, cut in thin strips
  • 10 cherry or grape heirloom tomatoes, washed and sliced in half
  • 2 scallions, cleaned and thinly sliced


Salad Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 tsp of Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbs of Sherry vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil


Prepare your sweet potatoes and get them in the oven. Meanwhile, clean the snow peas and blanch, drain, put in an ice bath to stop the cooking, drain again and pat dry.
Wash and dry the lettuce and chill in the refrigerator. Prepare all the other vegetables.
Now your potatoes should be tender and done. Keep them warm.
Wash and dry your steak and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
Turn broiler on high and broil for four to five minutes per side according to your liking.
While the steak is cooking, make the salad dressing. Whisk together the mustard, salt, pepper and vinegar. Slowly whisk in the olive oil in droplets until all is emulsified and combined.
When the steak is done, remove it to a platter and let it rest for five to 10 minutes.
Lay out the lettuce leaves on the bottom of two plates.
In a circular fashion around the edge of the lettuce, distribute the snow peas, sweet potatoes, yellow pepper, and tomatoes.
Tuck the daikon radish slices underneath the lettuce on the outer edge of the plate.
Thinly slice the steak and lay out in the center of all the beautiful vegetables.
Drizzle the salad dressing on top. Finish with a sprinkling of sliced scallions. Enjoy!!
