Ingredients

1 lb. flank steak
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp mild chili powder
¼ tsp salt
Nonstick cooking spray
½ lb. mixed greens (about 6 cups)
1 can (15-oz.) black beans, drained, well-rinsed

Dressing

½ cup tomato salsa
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
1 Tbsp cumin powder
1 Tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp freshly ground pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Sprinkle the flank steak with cinnamon, chili powder and salt. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Coat with a thin layer of cooking spray.

Place the steak in the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, turning once until the steak is lightly browned on both sides.

Transfer to the oven and cook 12 minutes for medium rare, 15 to 17 minutes for medium. Transfer to a cutting board.

Place the greens, black beans, pepper, onion and cilantro in a large bowl.

Prepare the dressing: Place the salsa, lime juice, cumin, olive oil and black pepper in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Drizzle over the greens and toss until the greens are coated. Transfer the salad to a large platter.

Thinly slice the steak and transfer to platter. Serve immediately.
