  • Summary

    We eat this salad—which is a great way to stretch a piece of beef—all year long for lunch and dinner, but it's particularly good during the warmer months. The thinly sliced meat, the crunch of the cucumbers and red onions, and the heady aroma of mint and cilantro tossed with the chile-spiked salty-sweet dressing seem made for hot days and nights.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound (455 g) strip steak (about 1 inch/2.5 cm thick; see Tip), trimmed and at room temperature
    • Vegetable oil
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1 large head of butter lettuce, also known as Boston or Bibb, leaves torn into bite-size pieces
    • 1/2 English cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced
    • 1/2 pint (120 g) cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1/2 small red onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
    • Handful of fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
    • Large handful of fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
    • Chile-Lime Sauce
    • Handful of roasted peanuts, whole or roughly chopped (optional)
