Warm weather calls for a crisp salad. Am I right or am I right?
While Dean tends to be the chef of the house, creative salads and sandwiches are more my sport. I like to find fun ways to take fresh & delicious items straight out of the fridge and into my belly. This salad is a definite go-to all throughout spring and summer: A simple steak salad!
Hard-boil your egg (Cover your egg in cool water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover your pot and remove from heat. Let it sit for 12 minutes before taking out the eggs and letting them sit in cold water until cool.)
Cook your steak (We buy top London broil or sirloin steak. Trim fat and cut into 1 inch cubes, season to taste. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and add your cubed steak. Cook for ~5 minutes, stir occasionally to insure an even cook.)
Cube half of an avocado and a quarter of a tomato
Throw everything in a large bowl and mix
Top with shredded parmesan, croutons, and your dressing of choice (oil & vinegar always works!)
Other great options?
-Switch our your steak and cheese for baked chicken and turkey bacon. I promise you won't be disappointed!
-To make it even healthier, swap out the dressing for lemon juice and leave out the croutons.
Also- Should you decide that you have too much steak in front of you, just call Allegra! Apparently she ate more than half the steak we made last night. Three years old and still surprising us every day ::insert eye roll here::
