Ready Time

45 mins

Yields

10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds steak (such as flank steak or skirt steak)
  • 10 cups mixed greens
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cups sliced red onion
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Grill the steak to desired doneness, about 5-7 minutes per side for medium-rare. Once cooked, let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing it thinly against the grain.

In a large bowl, combine the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, and sliced red onion.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, Dijon mustard, chopped parsley, and chopped thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add the sliced steak to the bowl with the mixed greens and toss gently to combine.

Top the salad with crumbled blue cheese and chopped walnuts. Toss the salad gently again to combine all the ingredients.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

Make sure to slice the steak against the grain for tender and easy-to-chew pieces.

For medium-rare, cook the steak to an internal temperature of 130-135°F.

If you can’t find cherry tomatoes, feel free to substitute with grape tomatoes or even diced bell peppers.

For a lighter vinaigrette, start with 1/4 cup of olive oil and adjust to taste.

Don’t overcrowd the grill, cook the steak in batches if necessary.

To toast the walnuts, simply bake them in a 350°F oven for 5-7 minutes or until fragrant.

For a variation, try substituting blue cheese with crumbled goat cheese or feta.

If preparing the salad ahead of time, wait to add the sliced steak and dressing until just before serving to keep everything fresh.
