Great Dinner Salad Recipe

I serve this often for family and friends and they always love it. It is quick and so easy to make. Great for summer.

The Steaks are on sale at Stater Bros and you can use the Red Bell Peppers on sale at Henry's for only .49 lb instead of the yellow bell peppers.

Grilled Steak Salad

1/2 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing, divided (I use Kraft or Wish Bone)
1 boneless beef sirloin steak (3/4 lb.), 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick (On Sale at Stater Bros.)
2 large yellow peppers, cut lengthwise in half
8 cups spring greens or torn mixed salad greens
2 large tomatoes, cut into wedges
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions

PREHEAT grill to medium-high heat.

Reserve 1/3 cup of the dressing.

Brush remaining dressing lightly onto one side of the steak and onto cut sides of peppers.
PLACE steak and peppers on grill, dressing-sides down.

Grill steak 5 min. on each side or until medium doneness (160°F) and grill peppers 10 min. (Peppers do not need turning.)

Meanwhile, cover four serving plates with greens; top with tomatoes and onions.
CUT steak across the grain into thin slices; cut peppers into strips.

Arrange steak and peppers over salads.

Drizzle with the reserved 1/3 cup dressing

Prep Time:15 min Total Time:25 min Makes:4 servings, one salad each

Great Served for a dinner entree.
