Steak Salad

Pineapple Lime Steak Salad – The right steak for you. 

Everyone likes their steaks done differently – it’s a personal preference. 

If you like your steaks done well, who am I to judge you? All you need for this recipe is a nice cut of steak (preferably local) and a good pan. 

So much of the flavour for this salad actually comes from the steak. Once you’ve cooked your steak off, all of that flavour (that fond) on the bottom of the pan shouldn’t go to waste. 

Pineapple has a ton of liquid in it, when we add it to the pot pan, it’s going to deglaze the bottom and pick up all of that incredible meaty goodness.

Steak sliced thin.

Pineapple Lime Steak Salad – Cooking off your noodles. 

The rice noodles play an important part in the salad. They add a bit of chew that makes it so much more interesting and fun to eat. 

To cook the perfect rice noodle all you need is a big bowl and some hot water. 

Put your bundles of rice noodles into the bowl, pour over some boiling water and let them sit for 4-5 min. No need to leave them in a boiling pot of water to turn to mush. 

Once they’re nice and soft, strain off the warm water and replace it with cold water. This is going to make sure they stop cooking, don’t clump together and cool down so you can give them a quick chop and add them to your salad. 

Steak Salad

An easy and versatile dressing. 

This is a great salad dressing, I’m not sure there’s a salad that you couldn’t put it on. 

I’m a huge fan of using as little dishes as possible, that’s why I pretty much always use the mason jar method of emulsifying.

All you need is a large mason jar and a strong shake. As you shake the oils are going to mix with the fats and create a quick vinaigrette. 

If you want it to be smoother, feel free to put everything into a blender and blend on high until all of the ingredients are fully incorporated and it’s silky smooth.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Pineapple Lime Steak Salad 


  • 4 cups Salad Greens
  • 1 cup Rice Noodles Cooked
  • 1/2 cup Green Onions Thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion Thinly Sliced
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts
  • 2/3 cup Edamame Optional but fun!
  • 2 cups Pineapples Diced
  • 1 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Steak Charred and sliced

For the Dressing

  • 1/4 cup Ginger
  • 1 Garlic Clove Minced
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Flakes
  • 4 Limes Juiced
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • Black Pepper Just a pinch!


  • Into a large salad bowl add in 4 cups of salad greens, 1 cup of cooked rice noodles, ½ cup of thinly sliced green onions, ½ cup sliced red onions, ½ cup whole peanuts and ⅔ cup cooked edamame. Set that aside.
  • Next we’re going to cook off any cut of steak you liked and to whatever doneness you like. I like a filet mignon cooked rare. Once your steak is cooked off, take it out of the pan and let it rest. Don't discard or clean your pan.
  • Into the same pan over medium high, add about 2 cups of roughly chopped pineapple. Let that start to char (about 3-4 minutes). Next add in 1 tsp of maple syrup and give it a good mix. You’ll want your pineapple to be nice and soft, charred and sticky. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • Next, into a mason jar, add ¼ cup minced ginger, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 tbsp maple syrup, ½ tsp chili flake, the juice of 4 limes, 1 tbsp of sesame oil, 2 tbsp of soy sauce, ½ cup of olive oil and a good crack of black pepper. Give it a good shake until fully emulsified.
  • Add your pineapple to the salad, pour over your dressing and give it a toss. Garnish your salad with your thinly sliced steak and enjoy!
