Summer is coming fast so this delicious Steak and Feta Salad is going on my summer menu list!
This is my all-time favorite salad! Isn’t it beautiful…I think that is partly what makes it my favorite. It is absolutely perfect for the hot summer nights when you don’t want to turn on the stove. Fire up the grill instead and chop the veggies…you are going to LOVE this.
This is the way I like it, but you can easily substitute your favorites in this salad. Swap the feta for blue cheese. Hate black olives? Add in artichokes. Make it your own…or try it my way.
I love to prep everything I need at the beginning of the week or at least in the morning before the busy evening hours hit. To keep all the veggies perfectly fresh I’ve been using these Rubbermaid® Freshworks™ containers and while I was skeptical at first, I am beyond thrilled with how much longer my produce stays fresh. Seriously, they are amazing! They keep produce fresher up to 80% longer than storing produce in bags from the store. Another bonus…they are dishwasher safe. You know me….it has to be dishwasher safe or I don’t use it!
This salad is also perfect for a spring or summer picnic. Just layer everything in the large container and any liquid will drain away. Then top with dressing and dig in for an easy and delicious picnic.
Grilled Steak and Feta Salad
Summer is coming fast so this Steak and Feta Salad recipe is going on my summer menu list! Made with grilled flank steak, summer veggies and feta cheese.
- 3 lb flank steak
- 1 small bottle fat free Italian dressing (~8oz) divided
- 1 head lettuce, shredded
- 2 tomatoes, cubed
- 1 cucumber, seeded and cubed
- 1 small can sliced black olives
- 1 red onion, diced
- 1 small container feta cheese
- croutons or other salad toppings
- Marinate steak in half of the Italian dressing for 6-8 hours in a ziptop baggie. Keep in the fridge while marinating. Cook steak on the grill until it's reached desired doneness.
- Meanwhile, assemble the salad on 4 plates, with the lettuce on bottom. Sprinkle each salad with ¼ container of feta and ¼ remaining dressing.

That looks delicious! It is so hot outside and this looks like the perfect meal to make.
I’m a weird creature who hates steak but the salad sounds delicious. I love feta and I sneak cherry tomatoes into anything I can.
Lettuce is probably the #1 kind of produce I buy that gets icky before I eat it all. I really need a container like this for it!

I like to take the cheese put some fried onions on top cheese nest and then melt it on the steak
It looks delicious. I love a good steak fresh off the grill, but I have to say that eating steak cold on a salad is equally delicious! And so healthy too.
This is one of my favorite combinations.

This is making me hungry! I’m definitely going to have to make one of these salads. I’ll have to look for those containers as well, produce goes bad so fast!
Mmmmmm this looks absolutely delicious! My husband definitely won’t complain about salad for dinner if it has steak on it!
Looks so very good, my kind of meal.
carol clark says
you had me at steak i love the containers a great thing to have for your veggies or fruit
Lovely, top marks for this. Tastes great. Thanks.
Oh my gosh Wendy I just was talking to the hubby tonight about slicing a steak for salad. He didn’t appreciate that too much, said I would be killing an otherwise delicious meal! Guess I have to grill his and slice mine lol
It looks delicious wendy! If one doesn’t like Feta what other cheese would you suggest??? Thanks, love watching your blog
Well, I like black olives and artichokes. Can I use both?!
I wish that I would think to make more things like this. Keeps the house cool, easy to do, plus my husband does the grilling 🙂
