Wash produce before use


Pickle the onion

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Juice the lime.
In a medium bowl, combine the onion and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and roast the carrots

  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into ½-inch-thick slices.
On a sheet pan, toss the carrots with the carrot spice blend and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast until tender and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
While the carrots roast, prepare the steak.


Prep and cook the steak

  • Pat the steak dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the steak and cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare for top sirloins, 7 to 9 minutes for rib-eye, and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Add more oil between batches if needed. Cut the steak into ¼-inch-thick slices.
While the steak cooks and rests, prepare the salad.


Prep the remaining ingredients; assemble the salad

  • Strip the kale leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Core and cut the apple into ¼-inch-thick slices.
In a large bowl, toss together the kale, apple, roasted carrots, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, the lime juice from the pickled onion, and as much pickled onion as you like (save the rest for another use). Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the salad to individual plates, top with the steak, and drizzle with half the green goddess dressing. Serve the remaining dressing on the side.
