Ingredients

Steak

  • 4 steaks of your choice (Beef tenderloin pictured)
  • steak seasoning (Montreal Steak Spice was used in the photos)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Salad

  • 6 cups arugula
  • 6 oz raspberries (1 cup)
  • 6 oz blueberries (1 cup)
  • 1 cup strawberries (sliced)
  • ½ cup feta cheese (crumbled)
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds

Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Instructions

Steak:

  • Season steak and allow to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium high heat. Wait until the oil is very hot, it will be shimmering.

  • Transfer the steak to a plate and allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into strips.

Salad

  • While the steak rests, combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Shake together all vinaigrette ingredients in a small shaker, then pour over the salad and toss to coat evenly.

To Serve

  • Divide the salad into 4 bowls, and top with steak.
