What is it about a simple salad that’s so incredibly satisfying?
While grander meals taking hours of prep time always get the biggest ‘ooohs and ahhhs’ from guests around the dinner table, it’s still the lowly salad platter – if there is one – lurking in the shadows I reach for first.
It’s fresh, crispy, plucked-from-the-ground healthy eating I absolutely love and can’t get enough of.
Hubs and I have a salad several times a week. Nothing fancy. Almost always topped with baked or shredded chicken for protein, and a good clean paleo dressing. And that’s our entire paleo meal.
Well the other day I was in the mood for something a little different to grace my greens. So…I decided to whip up a doozy of a salad with hot-off-the-grill grass-fed sirloin steak and hardboiled eggs. A little nod to the classic steak and egg breakfast I guess, made into a garden of flavors with a little fresh tomato and avocado.
As you can probably tell, I’m not a lettuce leaf and dollop of dressing kinda girl. I need a salad with sustenance – and flavor! Give me some chopped veggies, some tasty protein, a zingy dressing, and let’s make this a meal!
This paleo steak salad has definitely got it going on…it’s big, beefy, and bodacious. This one could easily be on the menus of both a fancy steakhouse and a dusty roadhouse – yeah, it’s that good. And yippee, it’s 100% Whole30 compliant.
Oh, and I added a quick and easy creamy garlic vinaigrette that tastes way bigger than it’s six simple ingredients. I think you’re going to love it.
So there you go…a great paleo salad for you with no frilly ingredients and no fussy prep.
Grab a fork my friends and dig in!
