Rosemary Balsamic Steak Salad is one of my all-time favorite summer salads. This hearty salad combines an easy balsamic vinaigrette with juicy steak and fresh vegetables. The homemade balsamic vinaigrette with rosemary is one of my favorite dressings and is equally amazing as a marinade.

If you’ve got vegetarians coming to dinner, I recommend making a second batch of the salad dressing and pairing it with a salad made of peppery arugula, red onions, creamy avocado, cherry tomatoes. I promise they’ll be licking dressing from their serving plates – it’s THAT delicious!

How to Make the BEST Steak Salad Recipe

Step One

  • Place all of the ingredients for the dressing into a small bowl or mason jar and mix together until they are well combined. (The easiest way to do this is to put everything into a small mason jar, make sure the lid is on nice and tight, and shake if for about 20-30 seconds.)
  • Place the steak in a resealable plastic bag and pour half of the dressing into the bag as well. Push out as much air as you can, seal bag, and turn the bag over a few times to make sure that the dressing completely covers the steak.
  • Allow the steak to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Step Two

  • Grill steak until it reaches your desired level of doneness.  Remove the steak from the grill and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before cutting it into strips. (You can also cook the sear the steak in a grill pan or cast iron skillet on your stovetop if you prefer not to use your outdoor grill.)

Step Three

  • Place the baby spinach, green onions, and tomatoes in a bowl large enough to hold them.
  • Pour the second half of the dressing into the bowl and toss until the veggies are completely coated with the dressing.
  • Next, arrange the salad on a large platter and place the sliced steak on top of the salad.
