Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

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 remaining ingredients.

2

Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Cut the zucchini on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.

3

Cook the zucchini

In the same pan used for the steak, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, arrange the zucchini in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and just starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat.

4

Assemble the salad

In a large bowl, toss together the romaine, zucchini, tomatoes, olives, and half the red pepper vinaigrette (set aside the remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Transfer the salad to individual bowls, top with the steak, and garnish with the pumpkin seeds. Serve the remaining vinaigrette on the side.
