Servings: 6



1-1/2 pounds Black Canyon® Angus Beef Outside Skirt Steak, cut into 4 to 6-inch pieces
8 cups mixed salad greens
2 large tomatoes, cut into wedges
1 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup pimento-stuffed green olives

  1. Meanwhile place dressing ingredients in blender container. Cover; process until smooth. Cover and set aside.
  1. Carve steaks diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Season with salt, as desired. Arrange salad greens on serving platter. Top with tomatoes, onion, olives and steak slices. Drizzle with half the dressing. Serve with remaining dressing, as desired.
