Steak and Mango Salad

This salad had a little different flavor to add a nice variety to eating a green salad. It sounded interesting, so I gave it a try. I really liked the caramelized macadamia nuts. It was also an easy dinner to toss together. Recipe from: Our Best Bites

1 lb steak

1 head romaine or red-leaf lettuce
Red onion, thinly sliced
1 mango, cubed
1/2 C roughly chopped cilantro
1/2 C caramelized macadamia nuts

Dressing & Marinade

1/2 C fresh squeezed orange juice
6 T fresh lime juice
6 T soy sauce
1/2 C brown sugar
1 1/2 T fresh grated ginger
4 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
1/4 C olive oil
1/2 C canola oil

Blend ingredients in blender. Pour some of the dressing on the steaks, reserving at least 3/4 cup of dressing for salad. Leave marinaded steak in fridge for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.

Grill steak. Remove from grill and wait at least 5 minutes before cutting to let the juices redistribute. Then slice into thin slices.

Assemble salad: Divide lettuce and spinach onto plates and top with slices of mango, red onion, nuts and sliced steak. Drizzle with dressing.
