Sesame Orange Steak Salad is an absolutely delicious entrée salad! Easy to whip up, it’s beautiful, hearty and good for you!
I love entrée salads.
Salads can be hearty and satisfying — whether they’re vegetarian, vegan or protein filled, like this delicious one.
What’s in this recipe?
In the dressing . . .
- orange juice
- apple cider vinegar
- sesame oil
- black sesame seeds
- salt, pepper
In the salad . . .
Now, imagine all of that, mixed together in one bite.
When I use citrus in recipes, I think it’s the most beautiful and most delicious when cut into Supremes (below). Here’s How to Cut Citrus Supremes.
You can use any steak you like, but my favorite is this Spicy Flank Steak with Ginger and Garlic (below).

Sesame Orange Steak Salad Recipe
For the salad
- 2 large Naval oranges, cut into Supremes (click here to learn how and save the scraps!)
- about 7-ounces Butter lettuce, torn into bite-sized-pieces
- 4 scallions, finely chopped
- 1 cup cooked steak, thinly sliced
For the salad
- Cut the oranges into Supremes, like this, and be sure to save all of the scraps and juice for later in the recipe.
- Add the lettuce, orange Supremes, scallions, and steak to a large mixing or serving bowl. Gently toss to combine all of the ingredients.
For the dressing
- In a small bowl, combine the orange juice (squeezed from the orange scraps saved above), with the vinegar, salt and several turns of black pepper.
- Gradually whisk in the oil to blend it completely.
- When you're ready to serve, toss the salad with the dressing and sprinkle it with the sesame seeds.
