There are two things that “Mom” cannot get enough of when it comes to food – goat cheese and dried cherries! This salad includes both, and what a combination!

Steak Salad with Goat Cheese & Cherries

Ingredients

1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 tablespoons sherry vinegar
11/2 teaspoon Dijonmustard
1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound Laura’s Lean Sirloin Steak
6 cups Boston or romaine lettuce
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

Preparation

1. Whisk together garlic, salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard and honey in a small bowl. Whisk in oil in a steady stream.
2. Drizzle sirloin steak with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette; reserve remaining for salad. Heat a large skillet coated with cooking spray over high heat. Add steak and sear about 3 minutes per side or until desired degree of doneness. Let rest and cut into slices.
3. Place lettuce in a large bowl. Toss with steak, cherries and goat cheese. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad, tossing well.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
