One of the hard parts about summer cooking is keeping the food light. While I love pulled pork, big steaks, and juicy hamburgers I can only take so much heavy food. This sous vide beef salad with figs is a nice alternative to some of the heavier meals while still giving me my beef fix.
The beef is cooked sous vide and then quickly grilled. The salad consists of some mixed greens, including radicchio for some bitterness. I topped it with chopped up figs for sweetness and some sunflower seeds for crunch. Here I used a light lemon vinaigrette to dress it but you can use any dressing you like.
It is a nice, quick salad to put together and the sous vide beef adds some heft to it without making it too heavy. Here I used a sirloin steak but you can use any cut of beef you like, or even use sous vide chicken or turkey on it.
