Lighter Steak Caesar Salad


Boring people talk about the weather… I’m really trying not to whine about the contrast in weather from the weekend. Deep breathes…I’ll leave it at that.

Despite the cold rain, last night was super relaxing. I’m always trying to make my home more of an oasis – a place I want to be to relax and feel comfortable. Last night on the sofa in bathrobe with dog at my feet and Anthony Bourdain on the tube – oh so good.  And, this easy lighter caesar salad with my Fresh Market $6 NY Strip Steak after the gym! I mixed romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, cucumber and pan seared steak with good croutons and a homemade light caesar vinaigrette. Really quick and filling.

Make this salad – and consider your own oasis at home. It’s really hard to beat on days like today!
