Summer Dinner: Steak Salad Recipe

Summer grilled steak salad recipe | 11 Magnolia Lane
I mentioned this recipe a few days ago; I served it to Amy when she came to stay overnight on our way to the Haven Conference.  It was yummy, and easy, and gluten-free, so I wanted to share.

My husband thinks it’s important that I tell you that this is a waste of a perfectly good steak, which ideally should be served alongside a baked potato and fresh corn on the cob.  He recommends only using this recipe for leftover steak, which apparently is a rarity in his world much like leftover wine is a rarity in mine.

It’s still a great summer salad, and hearty enough to stand alone as a meal.


• Green leaf or romaine lettuce

• Cherry or grape tomatoes

• Carmelized onions (to carmelize onions, slice 1-2 medium-sized onions thinly and cook them in 1-2T. of olive oil over low heat for about 20-30 minutes.  The goal is to soften and brown them but not burn them)

• Roasted asparagus (toss in olive oil, spread on a jelly roll pan, and roast in the oven for 20 minutes at 400°; you can also use leftover or steamed)

• Crumbled blue cheese or Stilton (Amy tells me this isn’t strictly gluten-free, so you might want want to substitute with another cheese that is)

• Croutons (obviously optional if you’re going gluten-free)

• Sliced grilled flank steak

Serve with homemade ranch dressing

That’s it–it’s delicious and easy to use leftovers to make the perfect fresh summer salad.
