"A wonderfully tasty main dish salad made with flat iron steak, bacon and fresh blue cheese. My family loves it. I make my lettuce mix in a large storage container and have left over salad for other things." — Patricia

If you love bacon and blue cheese, then this salad is for you! A great combination of flavors! I used regular Worcestershire and also rubbed the steaks with a little minced garlic. I lightly scored them and grilled vs. pan frying in bacon grease. I used a combination of bagged salad greens and added my own mix of veggies - cherry tomatoes, thin sliced red onion, and thin sliced cucumber. I also added a little sliced avocado and croutons vs. the extra Cheddar cheese then drizzled with homemade Blue Cheese dressing. Perfect for dinner!
This is what I have for dinner when the rest of the family want hot dogs! So easy, such amazing flavour. I used a mixture of baby romaine and mache greens, and I omitted the cheddar. I will try this with crumbled goat cheese in ADDITION to the blue cheese, as well. Pair it with a hearty Zinfandel or Cabernet Sauvignon, and your taste buds will thank you!
I cut the recipe down to 2 servings and made 2 individual salads. What seemed like a lot of meat and cheese turned out to be the perfect amount. Not too much, not too little. I made my own blue cheese dressing using the recipe for "Absolutely the Best Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing" from this site. My husband loved it! I prefer a little more depth to my salads like onions, tomatoes, olives, etc., and found that additional toppings only enhances the flavor rather than distracts from it.
If you want to make this salad even easier, just use the European salad mix. I didn't have Worcestershire sauce, but it turned out fine without it. It was a hit, especially with the blue cheese!
This is excellent! We used a london broil and grilled it vs. stove top pan frying. Seasoned the same way. I also used two different kinds of bagged lettuces - iceberg shreds and a baby mix with red and spinach. This will be a regular in our house. To cut calories/fat I used a "light chunky" bleu cheese dressing and reduced fat cheddar cheese.
Wonderful salad! I marinated the steak for 2 hours before grilling it. I also used a homemade blue cheese dressing that topped this dish off beautifully!!!
Excellent! I marinated my meat all day, and was glad that I did, as it had a wonderful flavor and was very tender. I also added hard-boiled eggs, red onion and tomatoes. The family raved over this...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Good recipe. Didn't want to use steak, so I replaced with fresh mushrooms, sliced and stir fried in the pan used for bacon, drizzled with worcestershire sauce while cooking. Also you don't need blue cheese ready-made sauce. Just add blue cheese and milk in a small blender and make sure it doesn't get too thick.
