Hey friends – I’m excited to share another grilling recipe with you today as part of my ongoing partnership with ALDI! As you guys know, we love grilling in summer, and our latest favorite recipe is this Grilled Steak and Strawberry Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette. Fruity salads are so perfect for summer, right?!
This sweet and savory salad makes for a great light but filling summer meal. Matt and I made it for a bunch of friends recently and we really enjoyed the fresh summery flavors – and how simple it was to scale up/make for a crowd!
You can also make most of this recipe ahead of time, which makes it nice for entertaining. You do have the active grill time, but the salad base, the marinade, and vinaigrette can all be done before your guests arrive!
Speaking of the salad dressing – it’s especially fun because it has strawberries blended right into it! This adds a nice tart and summery flavor while also making the vinaigrette pink. 🙂
Even though this meal looks fancy, it’s actually really easy to throw together! And thanks to ALDI, all the ingredients are affordable and high-quality, too. We are especially loving their SimplyNature Organic Quinoa lately – we always have a couple bags of it on hand in the pantry! (Here’s the ALDI store locator to find one near you.)
Just toss the marinade ingredients and steak into a dish or plastic bag and let it rest while you pop all the vinaigrette ingredients into a blender and prep the salad ingredients.
When it’s go time, grill the steak for 5-7 minutes per side and then grill the strawberries while you let the steak rest.
Toss it all together in a bowl, et voila, a gorgeous summer meal!
