No one wants a lame salad at work. I am not one who enjoys getting like a rabbit, but I understand some people like it. Anyway, lets spice up this salad with some steak and pretty much whichever toppings you enjoy. Idea and recipe for the Balsamic dressing comes from Longbourn Farm.
- Salad greens of your choosing
- Steak, I used 2 smaller cuts I found at the store
- Cherry Tomatoes, sliced
- Cucumbers, quartered
- Red onion, sliced into ribbons
- Green Onions
- Goat Cheese [or cheese of your choosing]
- Salt + Pepper
- 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
- 1/4 Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 TSP minced garlic
- 2 TSP Honey
- 1 TSP Dijon Mustard
- 1/2 TSP Salt
- 1/4b TSP Pepper
Let’s Get Cooking
Heat a skillet on the stove to MED-HIGH heat. Cook the steak to your liking, I prefer med-rare so I went about 4 min per side. Remove steak from heat and LET IT REST! That part is important, this allows the juices to reabsorb and not get lost in the process of immediately cutting it.
Prep the rest of your ingredients and throw into a large bowl.
Combine the dressing ingredients in a closed container and shake to mix.
Cut the steak into strips once cooled and add to the salad. Place in your separate containers for lunches and keep the dressing on the side, or dress and serve immediately.
