Let’s Get Cooking – Steak & Walnut Salad with Pesto Dressing

Steak & Walnut Salad With Pesto

PREP TIME: 5 Minutes

COOKING TIME: 20 Minutes

TOTAL TIME: 25 Minutes


  • Steaks
  • 3 cup(s) baby rocket or other salad green
  • 3 tablespoon(s) walnuts (or nuts/seeds of your choice)
  • 6 tablespoon(s) Pesto (was almost empty so added the dressing).
  • Salad Dressing (no idea what I used, one was a Paul Newman Citrus dressing).
  • 3 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil to drizzle
  • salt to season / cracked pepper to season
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) coconut oil for frying


  1. Heat fry-pan over high heat and melt the remaining oil.
  2. Sear the steak 2 to 3 minutes on all sides, being mindful to get a good char on the outside but not over cooking. (I like mine cooked)
  3. Remove from the pan and cover with foil to continue cooking whilst it rests.
  4. Once you have cooked your steak and let it rest, slice ready for serving.
  5. In a bowl dress the baby rocket with the extra-virgin olive oil and toss in the walnuts, Season with salt and pepper.
  6. To serve, smear the pesto on the plate, top with the steak, place baby rocket salad on top, season with salt and pepper and enjoy.
