Summer Steak Salad and Shrimp Flatbread

Now that’s a gorgeous flatbread full of shrimp and other delights.

Pair that with a summer steak salad and you’ve got a winning combination!

Angie McGowan over at Eclectic Recipes created these beautiful dishes – so why not try them at your home?

They’re light and perfect for those warm days outside. Plus, they’re really flavorful!

Visit Eclectic Recipes for the full lowdown on how to make these fab meals. For me, I’d serve the shrimp flatbread as an appetizer, then dig into the summer steak salad as my main dish.

BUT, you just might do the opposite! Have fun!

Summer’s here!

That can mean only one thing . . . it’s time for Summer Steak Salad!

It’s light, it’s filling and it’s healthy. What more could a beef eater ask for?

This salad is known as Shaking Beef Salad in Vietnam and it’s quite the refreshing treat!

Serve with brown rice or simply on its own. And have fun personalizing your own variations.

It’s summer, so let’s play!

National Beef Steak Month? Let’s Celebrate!

So, I just found out that June (yes, THIS month) is National Beef Steak Month!

How did I miss this? It just snuck up on me!

So, in honor of this very special month (and, well, because I just love a good steak recipe) here’s a step-by-step guide to a scrumptious summer salad featuring this month’s star:  STEAK!

It’s got grilled herbed steak mixed with tender couscous.

That word always makes me laugh. Couscous.

So get out there and celebrate this weekend! Your beef steak will be very honored – and your appetite will be very, very pleased.
