Gourmet Steak Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

My favorite way to pack leftover steak is to TRANSFORM it into a gourmet grilled steak salad.

When my vegetarian husband is away on business trips, my daughters and I take full advantage of that time to tame our steak cravings. Nothing like a freshly seared steak, right off the grill….. Am I right?

There’s usually leftovers from our “girls only” grilling nights, so I make sure to put them to good use and pack them in a lunch for me to enjoy the next day.

All you have to do is cut your leftover steak into thin slices and place on top of your favorite greens.

Toss in any leftover vegetables and cheese you have laying around in the fridge and  BOOM….you have a beautiful lunch.

Remember to pack your favorite dressing, or give the Creamy Avocado dressing a try (recipe below). It is light, fresh and pairs perfectly with the grilled steak.

Creamy Avocado Dressing


  • 2-3 ripe avocados, chopped
  • 2 Scallions, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
