  1. For pineapple salsa, in a medium bowl gently stir together pineapple, mandarin oranges, sweet pepper and picante sauce. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Trim fat from steak. Thinly slice steak across the grain (meat will be easier to slice if it is partially frozen).
  3. Sprinkle steak pieces with seasoning; toss to coat evenly.
  4. In a large skillet, cook and stir half of the seasoned steak in hot oil over medium-high heat for 2 - 3 minutes or to desired doneness. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining steak.
  5. Arrange salad greens on plates. Top with steak and pineapple salsa.
