Salads can be boring. Plain leaves with no dressing and a bit of rubbery chicken. This salad shows how they should be done, with juicy steak, bursting with flavour. Complement this with delicious watercress and a zingy lemon dressing and you have a great flavoursome dish. Salads don't have to be just for when you're dieting - cook this and you'll see why! This is a two part salad. In part one we make the marinade. In part two we cook the steak and prepare the salad.
