Black Bean Quinoa Salad with Steak

Ingredients:

5 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 (6-ounce) top sirloin steaks
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon honey
1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1 cup unsalted black beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 1/2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 ounce crumbled feta cheese (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 cup ripe peeled avocado, sliced

Directions:

Combine 1 teaspoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, chipotle chile powder, and black pepper; rub evenly over steaks.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add steaks to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut steaks diagonally across the grain into thin slices.

To make dressing, combine remaining 4 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, juice, red wine vinegar, adobo sauce, cumin and honey in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Combine quinoa, beans, bell pepper, cilantro, green onions, and spinach in another bowl. Then, drizzle dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle with feta.

Divide quinoa mixture evenly among 4 shallow bowls; top evenly with steak and avocado.
