“Shop local”, “eat local” and “know where your food comes from” are not trendy p.c. phrases that will fade anytime soon.
Consumers are demanding higher quality fresh meats, and the fastest way to freshness is through local shops carrying local farmers’ products.

Black & Blue Salad
The steak I selected for this Black & Blue Salad recipe is a skirt steak, that had beautiful marbling and only needed a little salt & pepper to season.
It grilled perfectly… if I do say so myself.
When it’s done to your liking, remove and let rest for about 5 minutes before slicing, providing even more juicy tenderness.
And if you’re wondering … it does taste as heavenly as it looks! I mean seriously … soooo good, and so much better than the steaks I’ve bought at grocery stores.
After giving it a proper rest, slice and lay atop fresh green leaf lettuce and homemade blue cheese dressing. Add a few ripe cherry tomatoes for a burst of flavor.
Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe
This homemade blue cheese dressing was so simple and required only 3 ingredients:
- 1 cup blue cheese crumbles
- 1 cup plain Greek nonfat yogurt
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
Mix together well, season as desired with salt & pepper.
That’s exactly how easy it is to have a healthy steak dinner, in the form of Black and Blue Salad with a homemade blue cheese dressing recipe! Make sure to pin this recipe so you can refer to later.
