There are things in life that make you appreciate everything or small things.  Holding a new puppy in your arms, watching an incredible sunset, turning a corner on a hike and having the world open up before your eyes, seeing your children grow up to be kind and wonderful humans.  Each of these makes your heart well up~ And we should have moments like this every day.  Go out there and find your happiness!

I love food that’s filling and you can find joy in preparing and eating them.  So to that end, I give you marinated steak salad with blue cheese.  Get your grill on!

Tasty Beauty Shot:


Wild Strawberries foraged while fly fishing.   Such intense flavors!  Spent an hour hunting these tasty morsels.  Got multiple handfuls.


Marinated Steak Salad with Blue Cheese


2 lbs sirloin steak  (You will have leftovers.  Yum!  Make a french dip the following day for lunch!)


1/2 C EVOO

4 cloves smashed garlic

Juice of half a lemon- large

3 green onions sliced diagonally

Salt and pepper to taste



1/2 container baby arugula

2 soft boiled eggs

grape tomatoes

1/2 cup of crumbled blue cheese

Sliced green onions, 2-3 sliced diagonally

French fried onions  (optional)

Lemon Olive Oil Dressing:

3/4 cup EVOO

1 Heaping T of Grey Poupon

Juice of 1 lemon, medium

Salt and Pepper to taste.

Dash of Celery Salt (I LOVE this condiment.  I personally add a tsp to dressings)


Putting It Together:

Marinate the steak for at least an hour, preferably 2-3 hours.   Then remove from the refrigerator and bring to room temp.  Fire up the grill. When the grill is ready, place the steak on the grill and cook till medium rare.  Please use a meat thermometer as steak thickness will definitely impact cook times and finish.

Remove steak when cooked to desired level.  Cover with tin foil and let rest.  While steak is resting, create your salad.  Chop romaine and place on platter.  Toss lightly with salad dressing.

Add tomatoes and blue cheese.  Slice the steak across the grain and arrange steak slices on salad.   Cut eggs into quarters lengthwise.  Place artistically on salad.  Drizzle with a bit more dressing.  Salt and Pepper to taste.  I love the french fried onions for added crunch.  And I use the Kroger Gluten-free brand.  tasty!
