It’s finally Friday and I have a recipe for you all that I found on GoodHealth.com! It looks really good and I would make it in a heart beat! It’s included in a slideshow on the site that highlights late summer ingredients and how to use them!

Melon & Steak with Smoked Paprika Dressing

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound boneless sirloin steak, trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium red onion, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rings
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded, and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick wedges
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

Preparation

1. Preheat a lightly oiled grill pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper; grill with onion, turning onion after about 4 minutes and steak after 7 minutes, until meat is medium-rare or to desired degree of doneness. Transfer meat and onion to a cutting board; let rest 5 minutes before slicing steak.

2. In a small bowl, combine honey, lime, olive oil, smoked paprika, and crushed red pepper; stir with a whisk. Set dressing aside.

3. Slice steak; arrange on platter with cantaloupe, onions, cilantro, and mint; drizzle with dressing.
