Easy Steak Salad – a seriously delicious steak salad recipe (perfect for grilled steak) and topped with blueberries and blue cheese! 



Grilled Steak:

  • (2)  1-inch thick New York Strips, Ribeye or Filet Mignon steaks
  • kosher salt
  • ground black pepper

Homemade Balsamic Dressing (optional – feel free to use any balsamic dressing):

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon almond milk
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Steak Salad: 

  1. 4 cups packed spring mix lettuce
  2. 1 cup blue cheese crumbles
  3. 2 cups fresh blueberries
  4. 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  5. 1 cup dried cranberries 


Grilled Steak:

  1. Follow our directions here for How to Grill Steak.
  2. Once steak has been grilled let it rest for 5 minutes and then cut into cubes (or strips). 

Homemade Balsamic Dressing:

  1. Combine ingredients in small mixing bowl (or small mason jar).
  2. Whisk or shake well to combine.

Steak Salad: 

  1. Divide lettuce, blue cheese, blueberries, walnuts and dried cranberries between four bowls. 
  2. Once your steak has rested, cut into slices or cubes and divide between bowls.
  3. Serve with balsamic vinaigrette (or just a thick balsamic vinegar). 


  • How much steak per person: a serving a steak is generally around 3-4oz. 
  • Best kind of steak for salad: honestly you can’t go wrong, but I would say a NY Strip or a Filet Mignon would be my favorite for a steak salad.
  • Non-Grilling Option: Feel free to cook your steak however you want! You can even just use some leftovers you have in the fridge! But pan-frying your steak would work great too! 
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette: We have a great Balsamic Vinaigrette on the blog that we are linking to here and that is include in the recipe card, but here is a great store-bought one from a little tiny store in Minnesota I love! 
  • Salad Add-Ins: avocado or red onion would also be really good here!
