Balsamic Honey Grilled Steak Salad and Vinaigrette | MomOnTimeout.comIt is officially grilling season!  We grilled twice this past week and have some serious plans for this coming weekend.  Not to mention…Memorial Day weekend is almost here!

Seriously, where did Spring go??  Here in Sacramento, we not only skipped Spring but we are deep into summer with temperatures reaching 100 degrees this week.


At least the kids get to cool off nightly at swim practice :)  I have to admit, I’m more than a little jealous when I see them jump into the pool each night ;)

So, you all know that I LOVE to grill. It’s one of my favorite ways to cook and I’ll give you a hint as to why…less dishes. #lazymommy

I am also seriously into salads.  Like, I love them and eat them every day.  But, I’m not into wimpy salads. No. They need some protein – like grilled steak or chicken. In fact, one of my favorite ways to use leftovers from the grill is in a salad.

Pluuuuss, even my husband and boys will chow down on a salad when it’s got this gorgeous grilled steak on it! This Balsamic Honey Grilled Steak Salad and Vinaigrette is a recipe the ENTIRE family loves.

Balsamic Honey Grilled Steak Salad and Vinaigrette | MomOnTimeout.comWhen you’ve got a gorgeous steak salad like this…you need to top it with something amazing. Something like this Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette.

The marinade for the steak mirrors a lot of the flavors found in the vinaigrette making it a perfect match. I make up the marinade and vinaigrette at the same time because almost all of the ingredients are the same.

Since you’re making the vinaigrette ahead of time, the oil will separate – just give it a little shake-shake and you’re good to go!

  2. This looks like the perfect summer recipe!

  3. Oh my goodness! I love this! I’m originally from Pittsburgh, and steak salads are a staple there! But … we would put fries and cheese and fresh veggies and a hard-boiled egg (Whew! That’s a lot!) on top! It’s a hearty salad, indeed! This totally reminds me of ‘home’ :)
    You may be jealous of seeing the kiddos jump into the pool … but I’m jealous that you have warm weather! After our terrible winter, I’m craving sunshine and heat! Today was gorgeous, but it’s supposed to only be in the 50’s for the next few days! That’s half as warm as it is where you live!!!

    Have a wonderful Wednesday Trish!

  12. This is a salad that would leave me feeling very satisfied! It looks insanely delicious! Pinned! :)

  13. This looks great! I have to admit, though, that I’m super weird and would probably use feta instead of blue cheese (because I think I’m the world’s only cheese enthusiast that doesn’t like anything “moldy!”) We have some streaks and plenty of charcoal sitting at home right now, so this could be a great Memorial Day weekend dish for us!

  15. Has anyone actually made this salad? Am I missing something?….. how much of the Worcestershire sauce and the soy sauce? 1/4 of ??? I really would like to make this but not sure of the measurements. Based on the ingredients, it sure looks yummy!!!

  16. Saw you featured over at Wake up Wednesdays! This looks amazing! I’ve been on a salad kick lately. I think I could make the whole family happy with this one!

  17. Hi Trish – Wow, this salad looks beyond incredible! My addicted to steak hubby would be all over this! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe at Best of the Weekend – pinned! Hope you’re having a fabulous week!

    Made this for dinner and LOVED it!! So did everyone else. =) I used regular mustard in the marinade and vinaigrette since I don’t like the taste of dijon and turned out so delicious! It was a filling meal and soooo yummy. Thanks for the recipe. It’s a keeper!
