BackstoryMy summer has been filled with salad! It's been so darn hot here and I don't want to heat up the kitchen and I want to eat light! It's just me home for lunch in the summer so a salad works for me! I've been packing DH a salad in his lunchbox and he's been enjoying it! The kids love salad as well and they've been eating alot of salad too!
I had a leftover ribeye steak from our 4th of July cookout and I was craving a salad for lunch! I also had some leftover homemade blue cheese dressing that I had made thru the week so this was perfect for my salad idea! It was delicious so if you like steak and blue cheese, you'll love this salad!
