According to Travis...

"Is this lettuce?"
"No dear, it's watercress"

Spicy Steak Salad adapted from Oprah's website, serves 2

1 2" thick steak, marinated in the following:
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 Tb lime juice
1 Tb olive oil
1 tsp grated lime zest
1 tsp kosher salt
1 shallot, minced

1 bunch watercress
2 cups mixed greens
1/4 cup grated daikon radish

1 large hot pepper, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp canola oil

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp Sriracha (red chili and garlic paste)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt

First, heat the oil in a saucepan to medium-high heat. Dust the pepper strips in the flour; tap the excess off. Fry the pepper strips in the oil until toasted brown. Let dry on a paper towel.

Grill steak over medium high heat, about 6 minutes per side, to medium-rare. Pour marinate over steak. Let rest for 5 minutes. Cut steak into slices.

Toss steak, steak juices/remaining marinade, and greens to coat. Garnish with fried hot pepper strips.
