A homemade red wine vinaigrette is drizzled over succulent grilled peaches and tender, thinly sliced, steak mingling in a salad of baby spinach, pecans and blue cheese crumbles. This grilled steak and peach salad is a showstopper!
This week I felt great. I felt like I could conquer the world, but I ended up just taking pictures of salads instead. I'm OK with that trade off, though this grilled steak and peach salad could probably take over the world by itself. I doubt anyone could resist the bold flavors of this vibrant attack on the taste buds.
If you have never sunk your teeth into a steak salad before, this is the one to try. The bright and tangy red wine vinaigrette really livens up the meaty steak. You'll be sopping up every last drip with forkfuls of tender steak and freshly grilled peaches. Pecans provide a welcoming crunch in each bite, while pungent blue cheese cuts through the acidity of the vinaigrette.
This is the ideal recipe if you are looking for a healthier cookout menu, or just a more robust salad. This grilled steak and peach salad can just as easily be made outdoors on the grill, or in your favorite skillet on your stove top. However, if you are making it indoors, you can still feature the showstopping grill marks on the peaches by using a cast iron grill pan. I love using this grill pan whenever I don't want to fuss with an outdoor cookout, but I still want an impressive presentation.
