This is a truly delicious salad that comes together in less than 20 minutes! Steak and blue cheese are made to be together! I love the simplicity of this salad. The dressing is amazing!
Serves 3 -4
• 1 Tbs of Dijon mustard
• 1 Tbs of balsamic vinegar
• 3 Tbs of red wine vinegar
• 3 tsp of honey
• 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
• 1/3 cup + 1 Tbs of olive oil
• 2 tsp of grated onion
• salt and pepper to taste
• 1 1/2 lbs of steak of your choice (rib-eye, strip, filet, sirloin)
• 4 oz of blue cheese
• 1/4 – 1/2 cup of red onion, thinly sliced
• 1 head of Bibb lettuce
Whip up the dressing first, whisk all of the dressing ingredients together, add in the olive oil last and whisk until well combined.You’ll need to either grill or pan sear your steak, you can use your favorite cut, I used rib-eye. If grilling, drizzle the steak with a little oil, sprinkle on salt and pepper and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Remove from the heat and tent with foil.If pan searing, rub the steak with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Over screaming high heat in a heavy skillet, sear the beef for 3 – 4 minutes on each side, for medium rare. Remove from the heat to rest, tent with foil.
Tear the lettuce into bite sized pieces and place on a platter.Cut the steak into slices, arrange on the lettuce. Sprinkle on the onion and blue cheese and drizzle on the dressing. I wanted to keep this really light, but it would be great to add homemade croutons!
