Steak and Goat Cheese Salad with a Creamy Scallion and Lime Dressing
OMG y’all it’s almost Spring! I mean while technically it IS Spring I live in southern Ontario where it’s not unheard of to have a blizzard in May. That’s right… freaking May!!!! So when an almost warm day hit the other day I was all over two things:
So digging it 🙂
(That’s one of the first blog pics I ever took!!! It’s blurry because I put my camera too close to an open flame and almost melted the lense!). .
There is nothing like a crispy, crunchy salad ,then a salad with a BBQ steak…
But then you add crunchy cucumber slices and fresh tomatoes and then you add THE most delicious, creamy goat cheese in town. Then, as if that’s not enough… you add a homemade Lime-Scallion Dressing; something so delectable you dream about it…
Here you have my first (of what will be many this Spring and Summer) Entree Salads; this will rival any and all Dinner/Entree Salads out there. Take it as a promise. Take it as a challenge. I promise you, you’re going to flip for this dish 🙂Print
2 8 oz Sirloin Steaks, cooked according to my How to Grill the best steak EVER guide
1 Head Red Leaf Lettuce, washed and broken into bite-sized pieces
1/2 English cucumber, washed and sliced (skin left on)
2 Medium tomatoes, sliced into wedges
1/2 of a 140 g package of low fat goat cheese
1/4 – 1/2 Cup Whipped Scallion and Lime Dressing
Cook the steaks according to my How to Grill the best steak EVER guide; set aside to rest
Using a large serving platter, lay the lettuce first, then top evenly with the cucumber, tomato and goat cheese.
Slice the rested steak (at least 5 minutes so the juices don’t run out) and place on the salad.
Drizzle the salad dressing on top and then season the salad with salt and pepper.
- Go with whatever lettuce you prefer.
- I cooked my steak to medium Mike likes it that way.
- Grilled chicken or fish would work really well too 🙂
- Prep Time: 15 minutes
