  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 carrots, cut into matchsticks


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium. Season steaks with salt and pepper; add to skillet. Cook, turning once, until medium-rare, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; let rest 5 minutes, then thinly slice crosswise. Set aside.

    This salad was delicious - the orange-honey-ginger dressing is so good and such a refreshing change from other salads. Agree that 4 carrots was too much, and an extra orange is a good idea too. Will definitely makes this again - its a perfect summer salad.

    This salad was GREAT! I used three oranges and two carrots though, four carrots was WAY too much.
