I’m sure you guys have gathered that I LOVE steak, avocado, and ginger… so naturally I put them all together in this salad for lunch. With ice cold tea, this was the perfect springy lunch. I splurged and bought an organic, grass fed Australian steak.
8 ounces of good steak
3 slices of ginger
1 bunch of arugula (or other lettuce)
1 bunch of sugar snap peas
Salad dressing of your choice
Sprinkle steak with good salt and grill. I like mine rare, so I grilled accordingly.
Once your steak has been grilled, let it rest
While the steak is resting, brush the avocado and ginger with a little olive oil. Grill for just a few minutes
Arrange the salad in your favorite bowl and sprinkle with your favorite salad dressing.
*The grilled ginger is rather bitter, but tossed with the salad it imparts a light gingery flavor.
After months of putting off using the bike my sister gifted me, I finally got it out and took it for a good, long ride. Turns out, biking is super fun. I did 9 miles in 40 minutes and felt great. My knees definitely appreciated the break.
Anyway, after working out I bought a mini salad spinner and whipped up some salad. I thought I’d share what I made.
Steak Salad with Mint and Shaved Goat Cheese (Kaprise Kitchen original)
3 ounces (or more) of cold steak, thinly sliced
2 cups of arugula
1/2 cup of mint leaves, stems removed
2 small cucumbers, sliced
half a dozen shavings from a block of cheese, I chose Midnight Moon goat cheese
a drizzle of your favorite dressing
Wash and spin your arugula and mint
Arrange the salad greens in a large bowl with the steak and cucumber
Shave the cheese over the top and drizzle your favorite dressing on top.
Easy Peasy and delicious. The mint definitely adds a unique punch and freshens up the salad.
