Recipe: Steak and Goat Cheese Salad

Can I just go ahead and declare my love for goat cheese? To all of you out there who avoid dairy, you can go ahead and make this salad sans goat cheese but really, why would you?

The warm steak. The softened red onions. They warm up the goat cheese so that you don’t need much of a dressing for this one. Just a little bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. This has become a staple in my house, even satisfying the non-primal husband (oh the horror). By all means, enjoy.

Steak and Goat Cheese Salad

1 grass-fed rib eye steak

4oz goat cheese

1 large red onion sliced

2 bell peppers chopped

1c chopped cherry tomatoes

2tbsp butter, divided

4-5c mixed greens

1/3c olive oil

3tbsp balsamic vinegar

1) Season rib eye with salt and pepper. Heat 1tbsp butter in skillet over medium-high heat.

2) Cook rib eye 2 mins per side for medium-rare. Move to cutting board and let rest.

3) Add 1tbsp butter to skillet. Add red onion, stirring to scrape up browned bits. Cook until softened.

4) Divide greens, bell pepper, tomatoes and goat cheese between plates. Slice rib eye. Top salads with rib eye and red onion.

5) Mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Serve with salad.

Serves 4 as a side, 2 as a meal

  1. We made something very similar a few weeks ago, but grilled the onions (hey — the grill was on already!) and used blue cheese crumbles. So, so good.

  2. This looks amazing! ANd with it being summer, we like to have something easy to make. SOmething we can throw together without the stove, and just grilling if necessary!

  3. We made this today, and it was delicious. The goat cheese definitely seals the deal, too.
    I posted a pic on my blog:

    • Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it. It really has become a go-to staple in our household. I’m trying not to have any cheese, including goat, for 30 days. I don’t think this salad will be the same without it.
