Grilled Steak and Gorgonzola Salad

I absolutely love to make salad dressings, but Brianna's Blush Wine Vinaigrette is so good that I decided to omit the recipes vinaigrette. I knew that the blush wine vinaigrette would go perfectly with this salad.


Grilled Steak and Gorgonzola Salad
Recipe adapted from Cooking Light 

1-2 rib steaks
2 teaspoons chili powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon cascabel pepper flakes

lettuce, chopped
cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
red bell pepper, sliced
red onion, thinly sliced
brianna's blush wine vinaigrette
gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

  • Combine the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cascabel pepper flakes and rub evenly over both sides of the steak.
  • Heat a grill to 400 degrees and cook the steak on each side for about 5 minutes. Place the steak on a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut across the grain into thin slices.
  • Combine lettuce, cucumber, bell pepper, and red onion in a large bowl. Drizzle vinaigrette over the salad and toss gently to coat. Top the salad with steak and gorgonzola cheese.


The steak was cooked perfectly... I love our grill!
