Blue Cheese Bacon Steak Salad

Sometimes you just need a good steak but you want the appearance that you are eating healthier. That’s where this recipe comes in. We make our own blue cheese dressing and let me tell you. It is amazing. I may never buy bottled blue cheese dressing again and it is so simple to make.  Bacon is also added to this salad because…well we know why.

Due to the issue of E. coli with Romaine lettuce at the time of making this salad I choose to use iceberg lettuce. Hopefully we will all be able to enjoy Romaine again without the nasty side effects of E. coli because iceberg lettuce just isn’t Romaine.

For this recipe I’m not putting in amounts for the salad. Add more onions or cherry tomatoes or add less. It is completely up to you. A ten ounce ribeye fed myself, the wife and those three pesky teenagers. So one steak will go a long way. Especially when you add more lettuce to trick those kids.
