Protein-Packed Steak, Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Recipes

steak salad

Salads have a reputation for being bland, boring and tasteless - our salad is different.

Fresh, juicy fillet steak pairs perfectly with sharp blue cheese, sweet red onions and earthy walnuts. The crisp grilled pear finishes this dish off with a subtle sweetness that cuts through the blue cheese. (If you're not a fan of blue cheese, switch out for feta.)

Fillet steak provides the lion's share of protein in this recipe, so feel free to add a bigger portion if you'd like more protein in your meal. Blue cheese is great if you're on a diet because a little goes a long way and you get a lot of flavour from such a small amount. The addition of crushed walnuts provides a source of polyunsaturated fats too.
