Grilled Steak Salad

Although the Summer is winding down, there's still a place for lighter--yet hearty--fare like delicious salads.  My grilled steak salad abundantly showcases the season's bounty of juicy, flavor-drenched tomatoes and peppers, along with the freshness of crisp romaine and hothouse cucumbers, topped with perfectly grilled skirt steak, garnished with blue cheese crumbles and dressed with a classic vinaigrette.

Now that's a salad!  One that's as easy to pull together as grabbing the fresh produce from your fridge, grilling your steak and combining the ingredients into a scrumptious dish that can hold its own as a light and satisfying entree.

So while Summer may be on its way out, delicious and healthy eating is always on the menu.

Happy Eating!
