Grilled Steak Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

A salad everyone in your family is sure to love!

Am I the only one that is always so shocked at how much a salad costs when you are eating out? It’s mostly lettuce anyways! So why not make them at home to save the money? Plus, I bet it will taste 5 times better then anything you will find at a drive-thru!

If you are someone who loves salads then you will definitely love this one! If you are someone who isn’t such a big fan of salads then you will still love this one! My husbands biggest complaint about salads is that he is hungry ten minutes later. Maybe an exaggeration, but I understand his frustration. This is the perfect salad to serve the entire family.

The kids will love it also! My kids are not into eating greens so I just serve it to them deconstructed. That sounds fancier than it is! Instead of giving them a full put-together salad I just give them little piles of the toppings with lettuce on the side and their favorite dressing. They love it!
