Strawberries are in season right now and I’m having so much fun creating unique and delicious recipes featuring these juicy, fresh berries.

I have them in my fridge all year long but they really do taste best in the spring and summer. They are just so sweet!

Strawberries are not just for dessert.

They are delicious served as an appetizer, in jams or in summer salads.

They pair so well with all kinds of greens.

Last night we grilled a large marinated flank steak for the family and had plenty of leftover steak for lunch today.

I love the combination of this tender beef with juicy, sweet strawberries.

What’s even better is when you add spicy pecans and fresh blue cheese crumbles to intensify the flavor of your salad.

Be sure to use a fresh spring mix or baby spinach.

This satisfying salad is also delicious on peppery arugula.

If you don’t have blue cheese, feta cheese or goat cheese is delicious as well.

Next, I whipped up a tangy balsamic dressing to drizzle on top.

You couldn’t order a more delicious salad in a restaurant I’m afraid.

What cut of meat to use in this strawberry steak salad

If you haven’t had the pleasure of tasting flank steak, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Similar to skirt steak it does require a marinade to tenderize and should only be cooked to rare or medium rare for the most tender texture.

It’s an inexpensive, generous cut of meat that goes along way.

In my opinion, it’s as good as strip steaks or filet mignon!

Let this flank steak bathe in a marinade for at least four hours before grilling it to perfection.

Sliced thin and across the grain is the way to go.

Make sure you purchase at least 2 pounds if you’re serving a hungry family of four and want leftovers.

I love to pick strawberries in the summer or pick up berries at the local farm market because they’re so much more flavorful than what you can get at the grocery store.

They’re a little bit smaller but sweeter. And perfect for this steak salad recipe.
