We love that this Steak and Strawberry Salad is so bright and full of color! For this salad recipe, we kept it simple and with our favorite staples. We want this salad to inspire you and to feel free to change it up for what works for your family. We also have a simple Strawberry Vinaigrette recipe that is light, fresh, creamy and delicious! Perfect for this salad and much more!

Key Salad Ingredients

Spring Mix – We used a spring mix for this strawberry salad recipe. However, you can sub it out with your family’s favorite lettuce or even baby spinach!

Flank Steak – Should your family need to change out the protein in this salad, feel free to substitute. Grilled chicken or even salmon would be perfect.

Naturipe Strawberries – We love the flavors that Naturipe strawberries bring to this salad recipe. You can even add in Naturipe blueberries if you have some in your refrigerator!

Candied Pecans – Every salad needs a little something salty and crunchy. Candied pecans are a great way to do just that. However, you can omit this completely or go with your favorite crouton or crouton replacement.

Red Onions – Slices of red onion bring a bite to the salad that is quite delicious. This can be omitted if you are not an onion fan!

Blue Cheese – If your family isn’t big on blue cheese, you can replace this ingredient with goat or feta cheese.
