So watch this…minimal prep work is required for this super easy steak salad! Slice up some strawberries and red onions. You’ll also want to drain the juice from the mandarin oranges and goat cheese. Then set aside these yummy toppings for later.

Alright, alright, alright! Our super simple but amazingly delish made from scratch dressing is up next. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, apple cider vinegar, orange juice, minced fresh parsley, honey, minced garlic, chili sauce, and salt. Carefully whisk since it’s oil based. No splashing! Another great way to mix this up is to put all the ingredients in a small tupperware with a tight fitting lid and shake until combined. Strong emphasis on the tight fitting lid. Olive oil, apple cider vinegar, orange juice, minced fresh parsley, honey, minced garlic, chili sauce, and salt whisked together in a small glass bowl. #steaksalad #citrusvinaigrette #grilledsteaksalad #citrussteaksalad #dinnersalad #healthyrecipes

Give the steak a little sprinkle of salt and pepper to prep and really that’s all you need. The meat will speak for itself.  Grill covered, over medium heat for 9-12 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 130 degrees, turning about half way through cooking. Remove from the grill, cover with foil and rest the steak for about 5 minutes before cutting into it. Resting your steak helps to keeps those flavorful juices in your steak and not on plate. Using a sharp knife cut the steak into thin slices.

Now here’s the fun part! Layer the salad greens, strawberries, oranges, and red onion. Top with sliced steak, pecans and goat cheese. Pour on some vinaigrette, grab a fork and enjoy! You’re gonna want Citrus Steak Salad on the table every night. Mmm mmmmm!!! (And that lettuce came straight from my garden too. I’m so proud!)
