Steak Salad with Avocado Dressing Recipe

This is the Paleo favorite that every meat eater will eat, regardless of whether they are strictly Paleo or not. The reason why?

Steak salad with avocado dressing is too simple and decidedly scrumptious – how could one not adore that? Especially when served with grilled and zesty sweet potatoes as a gratifying side dish. So off to the store you go, to hunt down the perfect flat iron steak…

You’ll find your flat iron steak among the slightly more expensive cuts of beef, but don’t let the price put you off this amazing opportunity of dining so well in your own home. Did you know you can dip those gorgeous sweet potato wedges into the dressing too?

We highly recommend it! But back to the steak for a moment, for this salad is nothing without it. If you don’t find it labeled as “flat iron steak,” try searching for a “top blade steak” instead. Best not to cook it beyond medium if you are seeking the ultimate satisfaction in flavor.

Once you’ve sampled this special cut of beef and aim to make it a recurring factor in your meal prep, may we also suggest marinating it in this citrus marinade or rubbed with lemon pesto and tossed on the grill? If, by chance, you have stocked up on avocados and don’t know what to do with them, there is a Keto avocado green smoothie that always hits the spot.
