Recipe: Beef Salad With Lime Dressing

Watching Donna Hay on Masterchef last night inspired me to get out my "Off The Shelf" cook book by the wonderful lady herself and rifle through to find something interesting to cook for dinner tonight.  I settled on this recipe - Donna actually calls it "Beef Salad With Coconut Dressing" but I made some slight tweaks to it and came up with my own version which I must say was quite delicious, and also, it was really quick (15 mins) and easy (not much chopping)!

  • Eye fillet steak
  • Shredded celery
  • Baby roma tomatoes (cherry tomatoes would do)
  • Baby spinach leaves and rocket leaves
  • Handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • Handful of fresh mint
  • 1 lime
  • Olive oil
Heat a frypan, bbq or grill over high heat.  Cook the steak to your liking and put to one side.

Combine the celery, tomatoes, coriander and mint.  Dress with olive oil and lime juice from the lime (1/2 lime was enough for the 2 of us).  Slice the steak thinly and add to the salad, tossing it to combine.

That's it!  Ridiculously easy.  And VERY tasty too!  YUM.
