.steak salad w/ strawberry peach salsa.

I stumbled across a recipe for strawberry peach salsa and thought, "Oooooooooh! I wonder what I can make this with?" Then I thought I could try it with a scrumptous steak salad.

This is light and refreshing. Perfect for a summer dinner and only took 45 minutes to an hour to make! Even better!

In a bowl put 2 diced peaches (peeled), 6 sliced strawberries, 1 diced jalapeno, a little chopped cilantro, 1/2 lime juiced, and 1/2 tsp honey. Season with a little kosher salt and stir well. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix together 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1/2 lime, juiced, a little chopped cilantro, salt and pepper.

Spoon a little of the sauce over the steak and brush all over the surface. Sprinkle a little thyme and rosemary.

Put on a grill and cook until medium or medium rare.

Set aside.

Slice some red onion.

Peel one avocado and slice.

Holding your knife on the diagonal, slice your steak thinly.

To assemble, put some lettuce (I used a spring salad mix) on a plate. Sprinkle with red onions. Fan out the steak all pretty like, and the avocado in front of it. Put a handful of the strawberry peach salsa on last.

You don't really need a salad dressing for this, but if you really want something, use raspberry vinaigrette.

You could also add a little cheese if you want. Maybe something like bleu or gorgonzola or plain ol cheddar. Enjoy!
