Fantastic Salad- Recipe From A Friend And A Beef Contest
My friend Abbie, who lives in Texas created this amazing salad for a Beef Contest and her recipe, Cali Avoado Steak Salad was chosen as one of the potential finalists, but in order to secure that coveted finalist spot she needs votes, because she is my friend and I want to help her I am posting her recipe and asking you all to help also, if you are so inclined. Thanks so much and here is the link to the site so you can vote. It sounds absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to make it!
1 beef top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick (about ½ pound)
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
¾ teaspoon pepper, divided
1 large California avocado
1 large navel orange
2 loaves Nan bread
4 cups mixed salad greens
1. Rub both sides of steak with 1 teaspoon olive oil; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
2. Cut avocado in half; do not remove skin. Cut top and bottom off orange; squeeze juice from each end over avocado. Brush cut side of avocado with 1 teaspoon olive oil: sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt; set aside.
3. Brush both sides of nan bread with 2 teaspoons oil.
4. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 11 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered 13 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. During last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling, place avocado, cut side down, along with nan bread, on grid over medium coals, turning bread once.
5. Meanwhile, toss salad greens with remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Remove skin from orange; cut into segments. Add to greens. Remove skin from grilled avocado; cut into slices. Carve steak into thin slices place on top of salad. Cut your nan bread into wedges and arrange around salad
Never thought to mix steak with avocado, but loving the two separately, this sounds great!
I know right? It does sound great, I love the citrus, creamy avocado and steak together. Making it this weekend. Thanks so much.

Steak and avocado…sounds like a great summer salad.
Totally agree. Two of my favorite things.
I’ve never cooked avocado before. It sounds like a lovely fresh summery salad though, especially with the grilled bread. I’ll definitely vote. So good of you to support your friend Suz! x
Thanks Laura, I made it this weekend and it’s wonderful!
Looks great! I tried to vote but there’s no yellow button 😦 I’ll try to vote later, hopefully it will work then.
Thanks Christina, voting is closed they will soon announce the next round of voting. I will post if she makes it to the next round.
Looks so good! Drooling. I have everything to make it except the avocado. Gotta get some! Didn’t see the yellow button either, but will vote in the next round.
