Steakhouse Salad

This morning I was doing a little spring cleaning on my website.

Oh this old thing?

Yes. I was cleaning up files and deleting things to my little heart’s content when I came across this little gem of a recipe that I made LAST YEAR and never published. I could have sworn I published it, but clearly I was wrong-o.

So let me tell you the story behind this recipe.

It is a copy-cat recipe of a salad I had at a Portland Steakhouse that I took my husband to for his 30th birthday {yes he just turned 31,why do you ask?} I needed a diversion to get him out of the house because I was planning a big surprise party for him with all our friends. {See video here. Another photo here. It was a good day.} I figured a 4 course dinner would be long enough to get my kids settled with the sitter and all our friends hidden at our house. Whilst at this dinner, I had the most amazing steak salad {and lobster mashed potatoes and chocolate cake, but I digress.}

This salad had all the ingredients I love to include in a salad. From the heirloom tomatoes to the crispy fried onions, I fell in love. So, I recreated it at home with much success.

The only thing I would do differently these days is load on the blue cheese and cook my meat a little longer. {I was a wild child last year, craving that rare steak and all.}

If you need a tutorial on cooking the perfect steak, click here. I got you covered. It’s actually one of my most popular posts.

Feel free to use that tutorial to cook your steak or use some you already have grilled on this salad. We like to grill lots of steak just so we can have lots of leftovers. We’re all about the protein these days.

Anyways, hope you are all having a wonderful week!

PS- there was no Let’s Chat this week because I’ve been dealing with a sick Eddie, poor soul. Hope to get one up next week 🙂 xo
