Main Course Salads Keep Dinner Cool in the Summer Heat
By: Daniel Munns
When I take a look at my calendar, I find it hard to believe that it is already the middle of June. When I step outside, however, I am immediately reminded that yes, summertime is upon us! I know it is only going to get warmer and the last thing I want to be doing this time of year is turning on my oven. Instead, I want to get outside and fire up my grill! I also want to keep it healthy, so I turn to main course salads to take the burn out of the summer heat.
Here’s a great main course salad recipe from the brand new Saving Dinner Fundraising Summer Package that will help you keep you both cool, and full!
Blue Cheese Steak Salad
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 pound beef sirloin steak
8 cups shredded mixed salad greens
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
4 medium tomatoes, cored and sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
Preheat grill to MEDIUM-HIGH. Rub steak with oil and garlic and grill until it reaches desired level of doneness; remove from skillet to a cutting board and allow it to rest for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, arrange lettuce on dinner plates; evenly add cucumber, tomatoes and red onion; slice the steak and arrange it on top. Garnish with blue cheese.
