2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the steak

  • Cut a small corner from the steak packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked to the desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes for medium. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the ginger-basil dressing.


Make the ginger-basil dressing

  • Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon for another use.]
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a large bowl, stir together the ginger, basil, honey, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Prep and cook the onion and nectarine

  • Peel the onion and cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick rings.
  • Cut the nectarine in half and remove the pit.
In the same pan used for the steak, warm the residual fat over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and nectarine halves, cut sides down, and cook without turning until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut the nectarine halves into ½-inch-thick wedges. While the onion and nectarine cook, prepare the walnuts.


Prep the walnuts; assemble the salad

  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
To the bowl with the dressing, add the onion, nectarine, walnuts, and kale and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the salad to individual bowls, top with the steak, and serve.
