Kids and adults alike will dig right into this 30-minute dinner. The skillet seared steak gets some Tex-mex flare with a dusting of cumin while the fresh corn and tomato salsa brings a little crunch, some heat and a vibrant hit of lime. There is no end to the options with this recipe. Serve over mixed greens as a dinner or lunch salad. Bring warm tortillas to the table and let family make quick street-style tacos or serve as a beautiful main alongside some roasted potatoes and wilted chard. Leftovers are delicious in a wrap with some fresh, peppery arugula.
