  4. Prepare the dressing by putting all the ingredients besides the seeds in a blender. Blend until creamy and chunks have disappeared. If it's too chunky add more water, 1 tbsp at a time.

  7. Cut the steak against the grain into bite-sized slices. 
  8. Place salad onto a plate and tuck pieces of steak within. Sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper. 
  9. Serve with more dressing on the side for dipping. Enjoy!
