Strawberry Steak Salad

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 sirloin steaks (12 oz total)
  • olive or avocado oil for drizzling
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4-6 oz looseleaf lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 8-10 oz fresh strawberries
  • 1 large avocado
  • optional extra: a drizzle or two of balsamic glaze - YUM!
  • 1/2 cup quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar, extra to taste
  • 2 TBSP red wine vinegar
  • 2 TBSP dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
  • 1 tsp salt (I use sea salt)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
Pat steaks dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides. For best results, allow steak to come to room temperature before cooking.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
Add to pan and sear until browned, approx. 2 minutes for the first side and 1 minute for the second side.
Using a potholder, place skillet, steaks and all, in the oven for 2-3 minutes, or until desired internal temperature is reached. If using steaks larger than 6 oz each, adjust times as needed.
Remove from oven (potholder! grab one!) and place steaks on a plate. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes. Resting is crucial for a juicy steak and gives us ample time to make our salad and dressing!
Chop your lettuce, strawberries, and avocado. Drizzle avocado with lime juice and/or oil to keep things gorgeously green.
Combine dressing ingredients in a mason jar and shake well. Feel free to adjust levels of balsamic and honey to taste.
Once rested, thinly slice your steak into bite-sized pieces. Toss together greens, berries, and avocado then top with your steak. Drizzle with a little of the dressing and dive in!
