Ready in under 25 minutes, this Strawberry Steak Salad with Homemade Balsamic Dressing is quick and easy enough for lunch or weeknight dinner! It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit savory, and a whole lot of deliciousness in every bite!
By now you’re well aware of my penchant for turning leafy green rabbit food into meal-worthy salads.
I’ve been dreaming of this particular salad ALL WINTER LONG. I’ve been up to my eyeballs in pumpkin, butternut squash, and brussels sprouts and though I’ve loved every second of it, a change in seasons means a change in produce and gosh darn it I need no less than 500 strawberry salads in my face, STAT!
Typical “Strawberry Fields” style salads are usually accompanied by a bevy of nuts, cheeses, and sugary dressing which kind of makes it feel like a dessert salad to me. It may be great in moderation as a tasty little side dish but as a dinner salad? Oh honey no. I can’t.
This salad features a bed of leafy greens topped with juicy steak, ripe strawberries, buttery avocado, and a finger-licking homemade balsamic dressing. It’s stupid simple and the perfect blend of sweet and savory….
This glorious stacked sandwich is piled high with smoky bacon, crisp lettuce, and creamy pimento cheese for the ultimate Pimento Cheese BLT experience!
I’ve outdone myself today.
In sandwich form.
On a mission to recreate one of my favorite indulgences from a local lunch spot, these Pimento Cheese BLT’s made their way out of my kitchen and into my face. The happy dance that ensued was epic.
I couldn’t be happier with how these easy cheesy sandwiches turned out!
I used my zesty jalapeño pimento cheese recipe which I’ll include below with the sandwich, but feel free to use your family’s favorite recipe or even store bought pimento cheese if you already have that on hand. Though promise me you’ll try mine at some point! The fiery jalapeños mixed with the ripe tomato and smoky bacon make a scrumptious combo and you can make it as mild or as spicy as you’d like.
When it comes to BLTs I’m typically a purist. Don’t you dare try to BLAT me with sliced avocado or even so much as think of slapping some hippie hemp seed mayo on my sandwich. Just don’t do it, man. Bacon. Lettuce. Tomatoes. That is legit all I want out of this sandwich.
As I mentioned earlier, theres a little restaurant here in the Panhandle that’s open for like maybe 4 hours a day tops, 4 days a week. You’d think it would be impossible to stay in business but everything they make is so phenomenal there’s a line out the door the second they open. One of their signature sandwiches is a pimento cheese BLT and, even as a certified BLT-snob I HAD to try it!
Spoiler alert: it was amazing and I’ve been craving them around the clock ever since.
Now that I’m a card carrying member of team PCBLT it’s your turn!…
