Jalapeño Steak Salad

While I was attending UC Davis, I was SUPER obsessed with a jalapeño steak salad served at a local Italian restaurant. 

Once I moved back home, that beloved salad was no longer just a couple minute drive away, and so I had to come up with a replacement. 

This is a super-filling salad with a homemade, light and healthy dressing. 

Serves 2-4 people

Prep time: 10 minutes

Salad is such a personal thing. So, as far as ingredients are concerned, I’m going to list what I used but you feel free to pick how much you want of each ingredient for your personal salad. 


Mixed Greens
Cherry Tomatoes
Red Onion
Crumbled Feta Cheese

*Note: Prepare the steak however you’d like. If you don’t know how to prepare a steak or feel like trying something new. I TOTALLY recommend using the recipe/technique in the video below. 

Dressing Ingredients:

1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch of pepper
1/4-1/2 fresh jalapeño
1 small bunch cilantro (enough to fill 1/4 measuring cup)

Other supplies: 

Food Processor

Step 1: Throw all of your dressing ingredients into a food processor and blend it all up.

Step 2: Pour the dressing all over the delicious, colorful salad ingredients that you have put together.

Step 3: Top your salad off with steak.
