This Green Goddess Steak Salad with Kale is absolutely bursting with satisfying protein, nutrient-rich veggies, and tons of flavor.
As much as I love to create recipes, sometimes I secretly wish someone else would do the heavy lifting for me.
Enter Sun Basket!
Recently, I tried out their brilliant paleo meal kits that came delivered right to my door…
And the quality, taste, and attention to detail really impressed me. Seriously, I see a lot of stuff; it’s tough to impress me.
The Sun Basket dinners I cooked up, including this Green Goddess Steak Salad with Kale, were all winners.
They plan a variety of scrumptious paleo, gluten-free, or vegetarian meals for you each week…
…selecting the ingredients from certified organic, sustainable sources. (They even have breakfast and family options.)
Then, you choose your favorites, and they send everything you need to make your meals right to your door.
Seriously, all you need is your own olive oil, salt, pepper, and cookware. Sun Basket provides the rest.
On a non-food note, I know that shipping and packaging materials are a concern for many people…
Sun Basket’s got that covered. All their packaging materials are recyclable and compostable. No giant styrofoam cooler to dispose of.
When my box arrived, all I had to do was unpack it and store everything in the fridge until I got hungry…which frankly didn’t take long. The produce, spices, and sauces come in individual bags…
…and the proteins are all underneath, snuggled beneath super-chill ice packs.
The ingredients for each recipe are pre-measured for you, so there’s less waste.
And some components, like the Green Goddess Dressing and other sauces or spice blends, come already made. Bless! Huge time-saver.
The cool little note on the recipe card let me know that the base of the dressing is actually Primal Kitchen’s Mayo made with avocado oil and organic eggs. Definitely something to feel good about.
From there, all I had to do was follow the instructions, chop the produce, sear the steaks, and eat.
I really appreciated how Sun Basket organized the cooking process. Novice cooks often tell me they struggle to get all the components of a meal on the table at the same time.
Sun Basket tells you what to prep, when…
…and what to do during wait time.
If you’re new to cooking at home, you could definitely learn how to prep meals with confidence by following their format.
I cut and marinated the onion in lime juice. Then I chopped the carrots and quickly roasted them while I prepped the rest of the kale salad. And finally, I pan-seared the steak.
Dinner in 20 minutes.
The freshness of the produce was on point…just like I’d gone grocery shopping myself. And the steak was tender, juicy, and flavorful. Plus the portions were generous, enough for two hungry people like Z and me to enjoy a hearty meal.
For my Sun Basket delivery, I also chose Jerk Chicken with Creamy Slaw and Quick Pickles…
…and the Almond-Crusted Trout with Chermoula and Cucumber-Olive Salad.
Some of the other Sun Basket features I love:
- Recipe cards are also available online…in case you misplace one.
- Each recipe comes with a full nutritional breakdown.
- For prepared sauces and spice blends, the ingredients are listed…perfect for folks with allergies.
- You can mix and match any recipes you want…paleo with gluten-free or vegetarian with paleo, for example.
And, my readers can get 3 meals free with their first order. You’ll receive 3 of their first 6 servings free with your first order. Just click any Sun Basket link here in this post to redeem.
You can also gift a Sun Basket meal kit…think a brand new mom coming home with her baby or someone recovering from surgery.
And I think it would be perfect to have arrive at your door when you get back from vacation. Nobody like to come home to an empty fridge and have to grocery shop first thing.
I’m lucky to be able to share the recipe for the Green Goddess Steak Salad with Kale with you today.
Green Goddess Steak Salad with Kale – Sun Basket
This Green Goddess Steak Salad with Kale Recipe is bursting with flavor. Find out how to make it even easier than you'd think.
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 large carrot
- Carrot spice blend: cumin and coriander*
- 1 red onion
- 1 lime
- 2 6- ounce top sirloin steaks
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 Fuji apple
- Sun Basket Green Goddess dressing**
- Sea salt and black pepper
Prep and cook the carrots.
Heat the oven to 400°F. Scrub or peel the carrots and trim off the ends; cut the carrots in half lengthwise, then crosswise on the diagonal into ½-inch pieces. On a sheet pan, combine the carrots, carrot spice blend, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread in an even layer. Roast, stirring once halfway through, until tender and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. While the carrots roast, prepare the onion and steaks.
Marinate the red onion.
Peel and thinly slice the red onion. Juice the lime. In a small bowl, stir together the onion and lime juice. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you cook the steaks.
Cook the steaks.
Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper. In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare, depending on thickness. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for at least 5 minutes, then cut the steaks crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. While the steaks cook and rest, start assembling the salad.
Assemble the salad.
Strip the kale leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Cut the apple into quarters and cut away the core. Cut the fruit into ¼-inch-thick slices. In a large bowl, combine the kale, apple, as much marinated onion as you like, and all the lime juice. Add the carrots and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the salad to individual bowls, top with the steak, and drizzle with half the Green Goddess dressing. Serve the remaining dressing at the table.
*To make your own carrot spice blend, combine about 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin and 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander.
**Sun Basket sends the Green Goddess dressing already made which is a huge time-saver. Ingredients are Primal Kitchen mayo, anchovies, apple cider vinegar, scallions, parsley, garlic, and salt. Feel free to experiment with making your own or substitute whatever dressing you'd like.
