APPETIZER BITES: Make many small skewers of meat and serve with the salad in a cocktail glass or on a bread and butter plate for tapas-style dining. The salad includes vegetables and fruits rich in Vitamin C with your meals to boost iron absorption. The oranges, grapes, beets and pomegranate juice in this recipe are clever food combos that do just that. BONUS: These ingredients provide powerful antioxidants too.

⅓ cup (75 mL) pomegranate juice

⅓ cup (75 mL) canola oil

3 tbsp (45 mL) maple syrup

3 tbsp (45 mL) red wine vinegar

½ tsp (2 mL) Dijon mustard

½ tsp (2 mL) grated orange zest

¾ tsp (4 mL) minced fresh rosemary leaves

1 lb (500 g) Beef Top Sirloin Grilling Steak, 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick, cut into thin strips

½ cup (125 mL) chopped toasted salted or tamari almonds

Whisk pomegranate juice, oil, maple syrup, vinegar, mustard and orange zest in large bowl. Remove 1/4 cup (50 mL) of dressing to shallow container; stir in rosemary and add beef strips, tossing to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes or refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
