Mediterranean Steak Salad
Ken and I have started on a new diet of sorts. The Mediterranean diet which basically is lots of veggies, fruit, chicken, fish and the occasional red meat. When I have a steak I absolutely love a really good one and made up into a Mediterranean Steak Salad like this one.
Full on flavor and super healthy!! You can afford to get a really good steak and share it in the salad then if you are on a budget! So it is inexpensive, delicious and healthy, what more can you ask for?
Spice up that steak well and cook it to medium rare to get the full flavor. Make your life easy and grab a jar of already roasted red peppers. The onions and zucchini are grilled up on the BBQ with the steak!
A very simple red wine vinaigrette is the perfect dressing for this salad. It just brings out the flavors even more! The steak, red peppers, onions, and zucchini with the feta are all laid on a bed of crispy romaine lettuce.
Serve this up in a large bowl for everyone to help themselves. Great family style dinner!! It all comes together very quickly! This will be your go to salad for all spring and summer long! I know that I can’t wait to have it again!!
There are lots of salads on the site already that are Mediterranean like a Mediterranean Lentil Salad, Mediterranean Tomato Salad, and Marinated Roasted Red Peppers. We have loved all these salads. They really take the ho hum out of a side salad and add a punch of flavor to your meal!
Dust off that BBQ and get out there to make this simple dinner! You will want to be making it again and again!
