When its hot outside sometimes you just want to eat a light meal that’s quick to make so you can sit back enjoy the weather and sip on a nice cold drink. This salad is healthy, packed with nutrients and will fill you up without feeling bloated.
First start my marinading your flank steak. To do this we blend some chipotle peppers in adobo with some adobo sauce then mix it with some lime juice, salt + pepper, olive oil, clover honey and garlic. The marinade is so simple, packed with flavour and pairs perfectly with the blackberries and blueberries in the salad. In every bite you get a bit of spice from the steak and sweetness from the fruit.
For the salad we’re using just a few simple ingredients and adding everything to a bowl. To a large bowl we add some arugula, sliced cucumber, sliced avocado, chopped pistachios, handful of fresh blueberries, handful of fresh blackberries and some crumbled goat cheese. Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated, a few simple ingredients and voila you have yourself a delicious meal that is sure to please everyone.
As for the dressing, simply blend some olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, dijon, fresh mint, garlic and salt + pepper.
There you have it, a delicious summer salad that can be made in under 20 minutes!
