It's been awhile since my last post, sorry about that! School ended and I have just been enjoying summer to the fullest! We have been eating some pretty yummy things thanks to our trusty grill, stay tuned as a post some of my simple goods! 
I've been working in our garden, this is our first year so a total trial and error. We decided to plant everything by seed and a little late at that, so we are thinking a later harvest than usual for the valley! But we have been benefitting from my dad's garden so lucky!!
I looked in my fridge one Sunday night with no idea what to make for dinner. Looked at what I had to offer and low and behold the makings of a perfect steak salad! 
The Dresssing! So simple, yet so good! 
Half a cup of Olive Oil
3/4 of a cup of balsamic vinegar 
1 tbls of minced garlic
Dash of salt
Couple dashes of pepper
Steak Chopped Salad
Steak (or meat of your choice) chopped
1 large beef tomato 
1 large avocado 
1 egg boiled
4 pieces of bacon 
3 peppers (color of choice)
Half bunch of asparagus 
Feta cheese
Mixed Spring Lettuce 

Cook your meat to preference (I had steak left over from the night before)
Grilling is so easy this time of year and doesn't make your house as hot either! Throw your asparagus, peppers, and bacon on the grill they all cook quickly, about 10-12 minutes. Add your lettuce to your bowl, chop tomato, chop avocado and also your egg. 
Take your veggies and bacon of the grill, let cool, chop and add to salad! 
Last but not least dress with your yummy dressing, toss and you are ready for dinner!
