Try one of these in-season salads. These healthy dinners are satisfying, healthful, and hearty enough to be served as a complete meal.


8 - ounces beef flank steak
1 - teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 - teaspoon salt
1 - medium sweet onion, such as Vidalia or Maui, sliced horizontally into 1/2-inch-thick slices
2 - teaspoons olive oil
1/4 - teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 - cups fresh mache (lamb's lettuce) or baby greens
4 - ripe plums, pitted and cut into thin wedges
1 - recipe Creamy Chimichurri Dressing

Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle meat with cumin and salt. Brush onion slices on both sides with oil; sprinkle with pepper. For a charcoal or gas grill, place meat and onion slices on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium-hot heat. Grill meat for 10 to 14 minutes for medium-rare to medium doneness (145 degrees F to 160 degrees F) and onion slices about 10 minutes or until tender, turning both meat and onion slices once halfway through grilling time. Let meat stand for 5 minutes. Thinly slice meat. Coarsely chop onion.

Place mache in a large salad bowl or arrange on a large platter. Top with meat, onion, and plums. Drizzle with half of the Creamy Chimichurri Dressing. If desired, pass remaining dressing.

1/2 - teaspoon crushed red pepper
