Italian salsa verde is the all-purpose, no-cook sauce of your dreams: vibrant from fresh parsley and a shot of vinegar, briny from minced capers, and with just enough heat from crushed red pepper. Here, we thin the mixture into a vinaigrette for a speedy steak salad. A single 8-ounce sirloin steak, thinly sliced, goes far on these four entrée-sized salads. You can add any other vegetables you have on hand, such as thinly sliced mushrooms, grape tomatoes, and sliced radishes. Serve with pieces of toasted whole-wheat baguette.  

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a skillet over medium-high. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle steak with 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Add steak to pan; cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare or until desired degree of doneness. Place steak on a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes. Cut across the grain into thin slices.

Step 2

Place remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, oil, parsley, vinegar, capers, garlic, and crushed red pepper in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Divide arugula evenly among 4 plates. Top evenly with steak, onion, and cheese. Drizzle evenly with oil mixture.
