Simple Steak Salad

Now that the weather is getting warmer I am hoping to get out and work on my backyard. I am so inspired by all the DIY garden shows on TV and how they take an empty space and make it an outdoor living area.
During these warmer evenings, I love to make a steak and salad for dinner. One of my favorite simple dinners is to make a simple steak salad that combines the best of both.


 This simple steak salad is a great summer dinner idea. Easy to make too!
Steak salad is easily prepared with some vegetables and steak, but chicken or salmon can also be substituted. In this photo I used a breakfast steak because the price is reasonable.

Because I wanted to save time, I used bagged lettuce on this particular evening.

Drizzle with dressing of choice is Balsamic Vinegarette, and you can get the recipe for that here.
