Grilled Steak with Apple Jicama Slaw

This is a fresh and healthy summer meal for anyone that doesn't want to slave away in the kitchen.  The rich dense satisfying steak pairs perfectly with a light tangy apple slaw.  This is a staple in my house during hot summer nights and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Note: disregard the well done nature of the steak.  I forgot it on the grill & it caught fire.

1 steak, room temperature
1 jicama, shredded (I use a cheese grater)
2 green apples, cored and shredded
2 jalapenos, seeded and minced
1/2c cilantro, chopped
1/2c pea shoots
1/4c lime juice (about 3 limes)
2tbs rice wine vinegar
3tbs raw agave nectar or white sugar
Fresh ground salt and pepper to taste

1. Salt and pepper steak.  Grill a 1" thick steak (choose your favorite cut) over medium high for 4-5 minutes per side for medium.  Let set 5 minutes before slicing.   
Don't make the mistake I did and forget to check on your steak!
2. In a large bowl, mix together jicama, apples, jalapenos, cilantro, and pea shoots.
3. In a small bowl, mix together lime, vinegar, and sweetener.  Taste and adjust as needed (and add salt and pepper). 
4. Pour dressing onto the jicama mixture and toss.  Serve with grilled steak slices.
