Why is it that a simple salad can be so satisfying?
While huge fancy meals taking hours of prepping always gets the biggest ‘oohs and ahh’s from guests, it’s always the salad platter sitting in the shadows (if there is one) that I like to reach for first.
Fresh, straight from the ground healthy eating is something I absolutely can’t get enough of.
Our family has a salad several times a week. Nothing too fancy and always topped with chicken and a good paleo dressing.
The other day I was in the mood for something different so I decided to whip up a salad with a right-off-the-grill sizzling grass-fed sirloin steak and hardboiled eggs. Some homage to the classic steak and egg breakfast I suppose, made into a flavorful garden of tomato and avocado.
I’ not much of a lettuce and splash of dressing kind of person. I need a salad that’s a little more fulfilling. Give me some chopped vegetables, tasty protein, and great dressing!
This paleo steak salad has got it going on! It’s tasty, big, and beefy! This could easily be on the menu of a steakhouse and a roadhouse. Yup it’s that good. It’s also 100% Whole30 compliant.
So there you go. Serve and start digging in!
