Especially during the holiday season, its easy to go overboard with eating, and then suddenly discover you’ve gained 5 lbs (or more!), and your jeans no longer fit.  I speak from experience here. 😉  With this in mind, I’m always looking for healthy, delicious lunch and dinner ideas that keep me on the healthy track.  This Sweet Kale and Grilled Sirloin Salad is a fantastic meal idea that is healthy, filling, and full of flavor.

Loaded with crunchy, delicious kale, Brussels sprouts, shredded broccoli, cabbage and chicory and topped with grilled sirloin steak, this salad has a mildly sweet, peppery flavor. Fresh, filling and perfect for lunch or a light dinner!

This salad starts with an Eat Smart Sweet Kale Vegetable Salad Kit, that is loaded with crunchy, fresh broccoli shreds, sliced Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, chicory, along with dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds.  This salad kit is a wonderful way to get a delicious, healthy serving of vegetables in one convenient package.  I love how fresh and crunchy the vegetables are, and how is pairs so well with the grilled sirloin.

Eat Smart makes a wonderful variety of salad and stir fry kits, which you can find in the produce section of your local grocery store.  In addition to the Sweet Kale kit, we’ve also had the Ginger Bok Choy salad, which I paired with pork loin (it was amazing!!), and the Wild Greens and Quinoa Salad that I paired with a pasta meal.  These were SOOOO good!  I can’t wait to try the stir fry kits – I think I’ll pair shrimp with the Shanghai Blend, and maybe some chicken or beef with the Kale and Red Chard.  Click here for a store near you that carries these fantastic Eat Smart salad and stir-fry kits.

To add some additional flavor to the sirloin, I marinated it prior to grilling.  This Montreal Marinade is a go-to anytime I prepare steak for grilling, and is a wonderful way to season and tenderize.  When marinating steak (or any other meat for that matter), I typically prepare the marinade in the morning, add the meat, and refrigerate it throughout the day.  Typically the meat marinates for 8-10 hours, but I’ve marinated for as little as 1-2 hours, and it still adds great flavor!

 

My family and I enjoy our steak cooked to medium, so these sirloin are grilled for about 5-6 minutes, per side, over a medium heat.  Cook longer for a medium well, or well done sear, or a little less time for a medium rare, or rare sear.  Once the steak is done grilling, I let it sit for a few minutes, just to keep the steaks juicy.  From there, I slice up the steaks, and add it right to the top of the salad.  You can top your salad with the delicious poppy seed dressing that comes with the salad, or make your own.  I went with a dressing I make at home, using balsamic dressing, olive oil, and honey.

Here’s the easy recipe for what you’ll need for this delicious salad:
