Ingredients

Salad

  • 1/2 lb sirloin steak, (grilled or pan-seared first, then sliced)
  • 4 cups greens – we used Romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup red cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
  • 1 avocado, pitted and sliced

Dressing:

  • 3 Tbsp of avocado oil or olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp paleo mayo
  • 1 small to medium garlic clove, pressed
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Pat dry and season steak with your favorite seasoning, or sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Cook on well-oiled grill or in a cast iron pan (along with 1 Tbsp of oil) over medium-high heat about 5 minutes per side for medium rare steak. Remove from heat, place on plate and tent with aluminum foil for 10-15 minutes before slicing crosswise into thin strips.
  2. Arrange salad ingredients on plates as desired, or place in large bowl and toss
  3. Add dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until combined. Pour over salad as desired.
