Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium.

    Advertisement
  • Pulse 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup walnuts, vinegar, shallot, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor to form a chunky paste. With the motor running, add oil until incorporated. Transfer the dressing to a large bowl.

  • Sprinkle steak with pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Oil the grill rack (see Tips). Grill the steak about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, 6 minutes per side for medium. Let rest on a clean cutting board for 5 minutes.

  • Add spinach to the bowl with the dressing; toss to coat. Divide the spinach among 4 plates. Thinly slice the steak crosswise. Top the spinach with the steak, feta and the remaining blueberries and walnuts.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip:

Tips: To toast chopped nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Surprisingly Very Good! This salad was wonderful! My husband and I absolutely loved it. We loved the texture of the walnuts and the flavor of the feta and blue berries. The dressing was amazing! Great flavors all around. We were worried we would still be hungry but we weren't! Changes I made: based on the reviews of others I only added 1 tbsp of vinegar (I used a pomegranate flavored balsamic) I used a container of blue berries in fruit juice as blue berries aren't in season and drained the fruit juice - it was about.75 cents at the grocery store. I didn't have any shallots so I used 1 white boiler onion. I highly recommend this recipe especially if you like spinach. I thought the 1 tbsp of vinegar was just fine nothing about the recipe I would change. Pros: SO EASY! Read More

Fantastic salad! I would give this recipe more stars if I could. I made the it as written for an easy weeknight dinner. We liked it so well that I made a red white and blue variation for a Fourth of July gathering omitting the steak and adding raspberries. Everyone loved it and commented on the dressing which is just super. Read More

I make this salad with a few substitutions. I enjoy steak with gorgonzola (instead of the feta) and the fruit can be apples seedless grapes or whatever is local and in season. The vinegrette can be a redwine. Read More

Amazing! I'm not a huge fan of red meat so I think in the future I would not necessarily include it but the taste of the steak with the sweet dressing is surprisingly great. I also used raspberries instead of blueberries solely for cost savings and I used gorgonzola as I love it. I'm sure feta would have bee great too. This might become a new dinner staple as it is so quick and easy (and healthy!). Read More

Yummy. Used leftover filet. Everyone enjoyed it. I think gorgonzola would be a delicious alternative to the mild flavored feta. Read More

Superlative! There is no other way to describe this - a fantastic (not to mention quick) recipe. The only change I made was to use mixed field greens instead of spinach (because of what I had on hand). This recipe is going in the rotation. Read More
