On hot summer days like today, I am craving a lighter savory option for dinner. Maple Balsamic Steak and Peach Salad is a fulfilling lighter option that the entire family will eat!
I started the dish with one of the Wester household classics, Whole 30 Balsamic Steak and Mushroom Skewers . I ditched the mushrooms, but kept the marinated steak as the base for last night’s creation. Like normal, it was a toss together meal. I had left over steak and all the fixings to make a marinated steak for dinner. From there, I started Googling in the hopes of finding something to accompany it. You would not believe how often I Google ingredients with recipe behind it to see what turns up.
Well, I hit the jackpot not by Google, but from my Mom’s recommendation. She had found Maple Balsamic Steak and Peach Salad recipe a few days earlier and raved at how delightful it was. A quick jaunt to the store, slice up a red onion, peaches and off the the patio I went with a glass of rose. A few minutes on the grill and dinner was served!
