Grilled Steak Salad W/ Roasted Shallots & Crumbled Blue Cheese

Steak Salad

I’ve been craving steak salad for a couple of weeks now, and with my departure into the woods to teach outdoor skills this weekend I figured it would be a nice way to have steak and have a fairly healthy dinner. This recipe is super easy make, fairly cheap and is a real crowd pleaser. If you have a decent stock general cooking ingredients in your kitchen then you can make this meal for 4 people for only about $25.00.

Wine Pairing

A decent bottle of Pinot Noir is always a great match for a steak salad. The light and fruity taste is a perfect match to compliment the dressing and blue cheese in this salad. Pinot Noir is easy enough to find and you’ll even be able to find a decent bottle for around $15.00 in your local grocery store, assuming you live in a state where wine can be purchased at the grocery.

Personally I am also a big fan of fresh bread, so a french baguette with some irish butter or brie is a great match here, you know because steak salad is a french dish so it does kinda make since to eat it with french bread. If your going to go with butter instead of brie don’t cheap out on the butter get the good stuff, the extra couple bucks for some good quality irish butter makes a huge difference.
