Perfect for summer, the steak is quickly cooked on the stove and then paired with light and fresh berries. Grab my easy Balsamic Soy Steak Marinade recipe! [Don’t forget the Easy Grip OXO Meat Tenderizer that is a “magic” tool for tenderizing meat!]

Working from home

I’m so loving these warmer days, and I’ve found myself moving around the house to different places to work. I’ve been talking to more “work at home” peeps these last weeks, and it’s an interesting conversation. How’s it working for you? Where do you sit and work? What about the kids? Those kinds of questions.

I’ve worked from home for 24 years now, which is hard to believe. First, I worked from home with my last job, doing medical billing for ten years. That was when my kids were little. Then the last fourteen years, I became a food and travel writer here on RE. Deciding where to get my productivity on? Now it’s my office space in the kitchen, the living room (with lots of windows), or the front of our house in these cute chairs.

So back to this salad. It’s simple, delicious, and good enough for company on a hot summer night!

Who else works from home?! Where do you find to be the best spot for getting things done? ⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Salad:
  • 1 2 lb flank steak
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 1/2 c strawberries, quartered
  • 1/3 c goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 large avocado, ripe
  • 2 heads butter leaf lettuce, gently torn into medium pieces or 3-4 cups of mixed baby greens
  • 1/4 chopped pistachios
  • Balsamic Dressing:
  • 1/2 c olive oil
  • 1/4 c balsamic
  • 2 tsp Italian oregano
  • 2 tsp marjoram
  • 2 clove garlic, grated
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 Tbsp sugar


  • Rinse and pat dry your flank steak. Generously season both sides with kosher salt and pepper. Tenderize if desired.
  • Allow to rest for at least 30 minutes before serving. Make sure to grill the meat at room temperature, not cold.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic dressing ingredients. Set aside (this step can also be done a few days in advance).
  • Preheat your grill to 400 degrees, or medium-high heat. Grill your flank steak for 5-6 minutes each side for medium rare. When meat is cooked, remove from grill and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes. When the meat has rested, slice thinly, or cut into bite-size cubes.
  • Assemble your salad, layering the butter leaf, steak, avocado, strawberries, goat cheese, and pistachios. Drizzle the dressing on top and serve while the steak is warm.
