Lite'n it Up Feature: Warm Steak and Blue Cheese Salad

Lite'n it Up Feature: Warm Steak and Blue Cheese Salad

The thing about salads is that if you don't get creative, they can be pretty darn boring. This is why my mouth started watering when I read user tshellyedwards's post on a Warm Steak and Blue Cheese Salad in the Lite'n It Up Group. I am always looking for creative salad ideas so I'll definitely be trying this one.

To check out the recipe, just

Warm Steak and Blue Cheese Salad (from
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 20 min
Makes: 4 servings, about 3-1/2 cups each

Hi ladies! Here's a super easy, quick salad that is healthy and delicious. I've started taking pictures while cooking... so hopefully they'll be helpful to you if you decide to attempt the recipe yourself! Enjoy! :)

1/3 cup Kraft Light Zesty Italian Reduced Fat Dressing, divided
1 lb. boneless beef sirloin steak, cut into thin slices
2 red peppers, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced, separated into rings
10 cups torn mixed salad greens
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
**Note: I just used the light Italian dressing I had in my fridge and used a small sweet yellow onion because that's what I had in the pantry.

1. Slice the peppers, onion, and steak as directed in ingredients.

2. Heat 1 Tbsp. of the dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add meat; cook 2 min., stirring constantly.

3. Add peppers and onions; cook and stir 5 min. or until meat is cooked through and vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in remaining dressing.

4. Place 2-1/2 cups of the greens on each of four salad plates. Top evenly with the meat mixture and cheese just before serving.

And wa-la! Your tasty salad is ready to eat and enjoy!

Just as an FYI, I went onto the Kraft site and one serving of this salad is only 240 calories, which is not too shabby. However with four grams of saturated fat per serving, it's not something I would eat daily, but a great way to switch it up every once in a while.

If you have come across a healthy recipe idea, be sure to share it in the Lite'n It Up Group and I may feature it on FitSugar!

I might eat this salad, but I'd omit the blue cheese because blue cheese turns my stomach.

Aw - thanks for posting my recipe, Fit! :D That totally made my day! When I made this for me and my hubby, we had some leftovers so I wrapped it up in a 100% whole wheat tortilla and had it the next day for a tasty wrap for lunch! And good to know about the saturated fat! Do you think it would have less if a reduced fat blue cheese was used?

A heap of steak and blue cheese, slap on a leaf of lettuce and call it a salad. Funny :)
