DIRECTIONS

  • Coat the steaks in a blend of oil and seasonings such as Montreal steak seasoning and garlic powder.
  • Grill to desired doneness.
  • Apply a brushing of bbq sauce, if desired before allowing meat to "rest" for 5 minutes prior to slicing. ( Rudy's BBQ sauce is a nice one if you aren't sprucing one up or making your own).
  • Depending on the number of servings desired, mix all prepared veggies in a LARGE bowl.
  • Mix in sliced steak and blue cheese crumbles.
  • At this point you can either dress the entire salad with a nice vinaigrette and toss lightly before serving, or allow each guest to select their own dressing. (a vinaigrette compliments the flavors best).
  • Serve with a nice baguette, crescent roll, and your favorite red wine.
  • ENJOY (hopefully outside somewhere nice!) :).
