Food: Gorgonzola Steak Salad.

This packs a big punch. A big punch of flavor. I absolutely love salads for dinner – they are so filling, especially with some nicely grilled steak on top.

The steak may be the highlight of this salad but I can’t forget the gorgonzola. It is so creamy and rich in flavor. What a great thing to go along with simply grilled steak.

It melts a little too…which is never a bad thing.

And what is not to love on a hot summer’s evening?

I was a little hesitant that Mr. A wouldn’t have enough to eat or even worse wouldn’t even put a fork in it. Get it?

Anyway, he ate the entire thing. Clean plate club. I was happy and so was he. Cheesy, I know.

Gorgonzola Steak Salad

please note that I usually don’t measure ingredients for salads, since each one is personally made – so the list below is more of a guide.

Ingredients:

  • Flat Iron Steak, room temperature, sprinkled with a generous amount of Kosher salt and black pepper
  • Mixed Greens
  • Almonds
  • dried Cranberries
  • Gorgonzola Cheese
  • Garlic Balsamic Salad Dressing

Method:

1. Heat grill to 375 – 400 degrees. Meanwhile, gather up your ingredients.

2. Grill steak to desired temperature. Remember ‘carry over cooking’ happens after the meat is removed from the grill – it continues to cook. Let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing into. While you are waiting for the steak, assemble salad. Mixed greens, almonds, cranberries and gorgonzola cheese.

3. Place a few slices of steak on top and drizzle with salad dressing.
