Field Greens topped with Teriyaki Steak Strips

Sandra McGrath


This is so light and refreshing for a summer lunch or dinner if served with a nice crusty bread and a glass of iced tea (or wine!). The beef can easily be substituted with chicken. My family loves it and I hope yours will too.We have been trying to get in more salads and this one is exquisite!

Directions Step-By-Step

Marinate the thinly sliced beef with your marinade for about 10-15 minutes and place in the refrigerator.
Meantime,wash all produce well and pat dry with a paper towel.Place 4 salad dishes in front of you and portion out the salad in the dishes.Top with cucumbers, radishes, olives tomatoes, green onions,goat cheese and alfalfa sprouts. Then top with the nuts and berries, dividing each ingredient evenly among the four dishes.
Take the beef out of the fridge and saute in a pan.If your marinade has oil in it then you won't need any.If not however, add a touch of oil, any kind,to the saute pan first.Salt and pepper if desired, after cooking.
