This is a classic restaurant salad that is easy to make with ingredients that you may already have on hand. It has the crunch of the kale and the sweet and sour tang of the arugula and sliced steak, which makes it a perfect healthy adaptation of the original.

- ½ cup baby kale, stems removed, chopped and divided
- 1 and ½ cups baby arugula, chopped
