Grilled Steak and Blue Cheese Salad

Mmm… steak!  Whenever my husband and I go out to our favorite steakhouse, I love to enjoy a  fresh garden salad before I dive into my juicy medium rare steak!

So I thought, why not combine one of my favorite meals into one dish? Now I can have the best of both worlds, a juicy steak and a refreshing salad.

This salad is light and refreshing, yet manly enough that you can serve it for dinner without any complaints from the hubs!

Until Next time,
