When I take a look at my calendar, I find it hard to believe that it is already the middle of summer. 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 that will help you keep you both cool, and full!
Bleu Cheese Steak Salad
