Balsamic Marinated Steak and Kale Salad

I've been on a bit of a kale kick lately, but as you may or may not know, it is quite bitter and not too tasty.  Therefore, you have to add lots of flavor with it!  My husband loved the steak, but wasn't a huge fan of the salad.  This is a HEALTHY alternative to salad (as if salads aren't already healthy)!  The kale is so much better for you than your typical romaine, iceberg, or even mixed greens salad.

Serves 2


1 Lb top sirloin filets, or flank steak
1/4 Cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 Cup olive oil
1 Tbsp honey
2 Garlic cloves
1/2 Tsp thyme
4 Cups packed kale (or about half of a large bag)
1 Tomato, chopped
2 Tbsp chopped red onion
2 Tbsp crumbled gorgonzola cheese
Creamy blue cheese salad dressing


Whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt, pepper, garlic and thyme in a bowl.  Place steaks in a freezer bag and pour in marinade.  Let marinate for as long as possible (preferably overnight).

Cook steak on grill over high heat, or on stove.  Sear at high heat and then set aside.  Slice steak into strips.

Toss together kale, tomatoes, onions, bleu cheese and dressing and top with steak.
