  • 1 lb sirloin steak preferably grass-fed, 450g
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens lettuce, spinach, arugula, etc.
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomato halved
  • 1/2 cucumber thinly sliced
  • 1/4 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 cup walnut toasted, chopped (or pecans)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


Marinate the Steak

  • In a shallow dish, combine balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Add the steak to the marinade, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or overnight for better flavor).

Prepare the Dressing

  • In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, salt, and black pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while whisking continuously until the dressing is well emulsified. Set aside.

Cook the Steak

  • Preheat the grill or a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the excess marinade.
  • Cook the steak for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time according to your preferred doneness. Once cooked, let the steak rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Assemble the Salad

  • In a large salad bowl, toss the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion together. Drizzle half of the balsamic dressing over the salad and toss to coat the greens.

Slice the Steak

  • Cut the rested steak into thin slices against the grain for maximum tenderness.

Recipe Notes

  • For a more tender steak, allow it to come to room temperature before cooking.
  • You can substitute the sirloin steak with other cuts like ribeye or flank steak.
  • Feel free to customize the salad by adding your favorite vegetables or fruits.
  • To make the dish gluten-free, ensure the Dijon mustard is gluten-free.
