Smoked Blue Cheese Steak Salad

Weekend, where have you gone? You always go away way too quickly.

However, we have been having unseasonably warm temperatures lately and I’m loving every second of it! I’d be totally fine with skipping right over Winter and going straight to Spring.

Anyhoo, today I bring to you a little healthy, no carb meal that is perfect for detoxing after a weekend of not the greatest eating…

Tyler and I had these for dinner the other night and they were absolutely fabulous! Of course, he did the grilling so making them again today meant the grilling was all on me. If I haven’t told you before, I’m not so great with grilling. I get too bored standing there and just want to keep flipping. Not to mention I hate coming inside smelling like a grill.

I seasoned two filets generously with salt and pepper and cooked them for 3-4 minutes per side.

*Note: make sure your grill has been preheated so the grill plates are warmed up.

Good news though! I cooked the filets to a beautiful medium rare! Don’t think I’ll be out there grilling from now on though. I’ll continue outsourcing that to Tyler. 🙂

Look, I even got pretty grill marks. Mad skills right here. I’m sure Bobby Flay would be impressed.

Alright, enough about my grilling adventures. More about this delicious salad. Tyler requested a steak salad (can’t have a meal without meat, ya know) the other night which, to me, means we had to pair it with blue cheese. By happy accident, he grabbed a block of smoked blue cheese instead of just the traditional style.

Oh my was it good! The smoky flavor was perfect with the steak. Served over a bed of fresh, organic baby greens with some fresh veggies and my homemade balsamic vinaigrette it was perfection.

This can be easily adjusted to your liking by adding whatever veggies you prefer.

Now, off to veg out on the couch a bit and finish up some laundry (ugh) more before getting to bed early for work. Have a great Sunday y’all! 🙂
