Day 3 of our 5 Days of Dinner Salads and it is this divine steak salad!!! This one is a keeper!!! I love steak salads, you don’t need much steak to make this so special and the crunchy onions make it feel like a restaurant steak. Add a little gorgonzola and you are over the top!!
Portions don’t have to be crazy huge, this is definitely more than enough for me to be completely satisfied. As long as it is super tasty you don’t need mounds of food on your plate. I loved how I marinated this one and we pan fried the steak to perfection!! You honestly don’t need a BBQ to get a good tasting steak just the right marinade and cooking method.
