Blackened Steak Salad

I've always loved steak in salad. It turns it into a main dish for me...


  • 3/4 pound top sirloin steak (about 1-inch thick), fat trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3/4 pound (12 ounces) pre-washed spinach leaves
  • One 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed & drained
  • One 7.25-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained & cut into thin strips
  • pepper to taste
  • sliced avocado, optional


  1. Pat steak with Cajun seasoning to coat both sides evenly. Heat a 10 to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat. When pan is very hot, add steak. Cook, turning occasionally, until meat is well browned on the outside and done to your liking, about 14 minutes for medium-rare.
  2. Meanwhile, whirl salsa, sour cream and lime juice in a blender or food processor until smooth. Arrange the spinach, beans, and peppers decoratively in a large serving bowl.
  3. When meat is done, cut it into bite-size slices; add to salad. At the table, mix salad thoroughly with dressing. Add pepper to taste.


  • If you're preparing this as a GLUTEN FREE recipe, just make sure that your cajun seasoning and salsa are designated as GF.
  • If you don't care for jarred peppers, roast or grill your own red peppers (as shown in the photo).
