The weather was beautiful this past weekend so I headed outside and fired up my grill. I’d picked up some rib eye steaks at the grocery and had some beautiful fresh lettuce in the fridge, so, combining the two was the obvious thing to do. I’d been working on a new salad dressing that is a creamy version of my Favorite Vinaigrette Dressing so this was the perfect opportunity to try all three of these ingredients together.
This easy, light dinner came together in less than 30 minutes! Mr. A Southern Soul loved the warm steak layered over the crisp crunchy greens with intense, rich Gorgonzola cheese and the flavor packed creamy dressing. It was a delicious way to end the weekend…
