Grilled Steak Salad

Grilled Steak Salad

For this summery Grilled Steak Salad recipe I used skirt steak, grilled corn, avocado, gorgonzola, and tomatoes.

I could eat a good salad every day and not get bored.

There are so many combinations of fresh ingredients to choose from!

I made my light balsamic dressing by simply combining light mayo, balsamic vinegar, and sugar.

Grilled Steak Salad

Skirt steak is a very thin cut of meat, I only grilled it about 2-3 minutes per side.

Now this skirt steak came already seasoned, but I would have used olive oil, salt, and pepper if it wasn’t already seasoned.

You could obviously use any steak that you prefer.

Since I was already grilling the steak, I thought why not grill the corn also?!

A quick drizzle of olive oil, some kosher salt and pepper, and just about 10 minutes on a medium to medium high grill for the corn.

Timing a meal that everything is done at the same time is something I always think about.

I started the corn and added the steak after about 5 minutes.

Then cooked it another 5 minutes, turning the steaks halfway through.

That way everything was done at the same time 🙂

Making the Grilled Steak Salads

As the corn and steaks cooled a bit, I prepared the salads.

My son just ate the steak, corn, tomatoes, and a plain avocado.

He likes salad, but not this type of lettuce and I’m not about to fight with a kid who was willing to eat just about everything else.

So, just my husband and I ate these.

I divided the lettuce between two plates for our dinner, and two containers to make salads for tomorrow’s lunch.

Then added the gorgonzola cheese (which is similar to blue cheese, but milder in flavor), cherry tomatoes, and avocado slices.

And cut the skirt steak against the grain and sliced the corn off the cob and added those to the salads.
