Grilled Steak Stir Fry Salad
Thin-sliced grilled steak and grilled stir-fry veggies, tossed together with Romaine lettuce, fresh diced tomatoes, and feta cheese for a flavor-rich and filling salad!
4-6 servings (as a main dish)
8 cups bite-size broccoli florets
1 large red onion
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons (about 4 cloves) minced garlic
1/2 cup oil
1 red bell pepper, halved and sliced or chopped
3 cups thinly sliced grilled steak (freshly grilled or leftover)
2 heads of Romaine lettuce, washed and cut into bite-sized pieces (about 12-16 cups)
2 cups diced fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Ranch salad dressing, optional*
1. Preheat grill (or prepare charcoal grill), including a grill plate/pan/grid for grilling vegetables.* In a large mixing bowl, toss together the broccoli, onion, salt, pepper, garlic, oil, and red pepper.
2. Spread vegetables on the hot grill pan. Grill on MEDIUM with lid closed for about 8 minutes. Leaving vegetables on grill, stir thoroughly and then sprinkle the steak on top of the veggies. Close lid again and grill for an additional 8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender and steak is hot.
3. Remove platter from grill and allow to cool for a few minutes. In a large mixing bowl, toss together the Romaine lettuce and fresh tomatoes. Stir in the still-hot/warm steak and veggie mixture. Gently toss in the feta cheese and croutons (if using). Serve immediately with your favorite Ranch dressing.**

The finished salad. So delicious!
**I think the oil and seasonings on the grilled veggies dress this salad nicely without additional dressing. However, ranch or another creamy salad dressing works well with this salad. (I've tried Italian dressing as well and didn't care for that combo of flavors.)

I created this steak salad especially for Joshua! :) He was a bit skeptical when he watched me tossing the hot-off-the-grill stir fry into a big bowl of salad, but as we ate the salad for dinner that night, he told me it was very good, and definitely something he wanted me to make again in the future! Yay! :)
The grilled veggies smell like a delicious stir fry, along with the steak. I love the balance of meat, broccoli, onions, and peppers along with the tomatoes and feta cheese tossed in the salad. This is a VERY good dinner salad! :)
