Steak Salad With A Simple Yogurt Dip

Having a go-to weekday salad that I can quickly prepare for my family which is filling and tasty is tricky with two picky eaters! This simple steak salad with a tasty yogurt dip has been a real winner with us all as it is full of flavour while being really filling too. Adding some crusty bread to the dish is something my girls like to do as they like to dip it into the yogurt, and it surprised me just how much they liked the yogurt dip even though it had a strong hit of garlic in. If you prefer a more subtle taste just use one clove of garlic as it is quite strong with two.

I love to eat salad and with a family to cook for simplicity is the key for me, as sometimes I don’t want to spend hours preparing a meal. This salad for me has everything I love to eat, a healthy salad, protein from the steak and a yogurt dip which is bursting with flavour. I love the zing of citrus fruits so adding some lime juice gives a lovely lift to the salad and the girls love to have some lime wedges on the side so they can do it for themselves too. It’s really refreshing to cook a dish like this for the family and encourage the girls to try a meal that is out of their norm, even better that they enjoyed eating it and were keen to have it again too, which is music to my ears!

    Oh, man, that looks sooo awesome. One of the secrets of really good food is getting the presentation right, and from the look of those photos, you've nailed it. Good food makes you hungry just looking at it.

    Nice simple meal, good idea. I don't like coriander, so I would try a few chives instead maybe, and tone down the garlic. I used to like lots of strong flavours, but not now.

    That's an interesting combination! Dips and salads would be my desert island food so it's nice to see a twist on that.

    I love steak, but don't eat enough salad, so this would be a good one for me to try.
