Steak + Grilled Peach Salad

It’s my favorite day of the week, food Friday! Today’s recipe share is another salad (I tend to eat a lot of greens with stuff thrown on top of it in the summer) that combines sweet + savory – but with a twist! I love adding fruit to salads, for some reason I have a harder time adding actual veggies to my salad but give me a fruit + I have likely used it in salad before. The ‘twist’ here though was grilling the peach ever so slightly. And umm guys? Ah-mazing. It was like the peach had all new flavors + it was a very ripe one to begin with! We threw it on the grill for just a few minutes, just enough time to get the nice char marks on it and get those juices oozing while we grilled our steaks. The key to these steaks is to marinate them in the marinade for at least a few hours and up to overnight depending on how strongly you want them flavored (the longer you marinate the more flavorful the taste will be). And then it was as simple as chopping the steak, the peach, throwing both over some greens + topping off with some crumbled feta + dressing of choice.

Steak marinade:

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: depends on how you like your steak! 😉

Yields: 1/2 cup marinade (enough for 1.5-2 lbs. of meat)

-1/4 cup teriyaki of choice (we love soy vay veri teri teriyaki)

-1 Tbsp. dijon mustard

-1 Tbsp. hot chinese mustard (or you can sub for an extra 1 Tbsp. dijon plus 1/2-1 tsp. hot sauce of choice depending on how much kick you want)

-2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

-salt + pepper to taste

 

Instructions:

Whisk all ingredients of your marinade together and pour over steaks making sure to evenly coat both sides of the steak. Add saran wrap or add tight sealed lid to your plate + refrigerate for at least 4 hours + up to overnight. Take the steaks out about 20 minutes before grilling + allow to come to room temperature. Grill to desired doneness + add peach to grill when steaks have about 5 minutes remaining. Cut everything up over a bed of lettuce + top with favorite dressing (I highly recommend a nice balsamic vinaigrette, easy recipe here or a honey dijon, mmm mmm).

Happy weekend loves. xo, jules
