Grilled steak sliced over colorful greens, sweet bell peppers, avocado, and thinly shaved red onion. This steak salad is perfectly highlighted with a healthy, flavorful chive yogurt dressing.
Living in a house full of men is all about compromise, especially when it comes to meal time. My fellas would happily eat red meat, preferably grilled oven an open flame, every night of the week. Seriously, I could serve a slab of beef on a plate, with no side dishes, and nobody would complain. When grilled steak is involved, my family fully subscribes to Queen Julia’s view on salads:
“The only time to eat diet food is while waiting for the steak to cook.” -Julia Child
While Julia and I agree on many things, I prefer to balance the meat with lots of fresh vegetables. Unless it’s a special occasion, or Bacon Slayer & I are having an in-house date night, meals must be quick.
Fact: growing boys wait for no one when food is involved.
Grilled Steak Salad with Chive Yogurt Dressing is a crisp, chilled salad, with slightly wilted greens from the heat of the grilled meat.
A creamy, yet still light chive yogurt dressing made from fresh ingredients is the perfect compliment to the meal. The generous portion of beef is plenty enough to satisfy the men in my family, while the simple variety of vegetables and bright yogurt dressing satisfies my feminine nature.
Everyone leaves the table sated, and better yet, nobody feels guilty about having extra whipped cream on our lemon chess pie for dessert.
