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.
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.
Simple Steak Salad
steak (about 1/4 – 1/3 pound per serving)
1 head lettuce (fresh or bagged)
1 tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons onion, chopped
1 cucumber, sliced
1 egg, hard-boiled
1/2 cup gorgonzola or bleu cheese, crumbled
Preheat the grill on medium-high heat. Season meat with sea salt and pepper. Grill over heat about 3-4 minutes. When steak is down, let rest for a couple of minutes.
Mix salad ingredients in a bowl. Serve salad on plates.
Slice steak and place on top of salads,
Drizzle with dressing of choice is Balsamic Vinegarette, and you can get the recipe for that here
