Pear and Steak Salad Recipe with a Lemon Dressing

You might be surprised when you see the ingredients for this steak salad recipe. A lot of steak salads are very basic but this one is really simple. The salad itself consists of lettuce, steak, pear, and bell pepper and the dressing is a very simple mixture of oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. You might wonder if these basic ingredients can work together to give this steak salad sufficient flavor and the answer is a resounding yes! Most of the flavor comes from the two main ingredients which are, of course, the steak and the pear.

You do not need to put a lot of effort into this easy steak salad recipe but you will be pleased with the results. Sometimes, if you use good quality ingredients, it is unnecessary to combine too many flavors or use too many different things in the same salad. Steak lovers often prefer to keep their steak simple, adding simply salt and pepper for flavor. The same applies to a steak salad. Too many different flavors will overpower the meat, rather than enhancing it.

Choose a pear which is ripe but still firm. Mushy, overripe pears do not work well in steak salad recipes or any other recipes. Save the overripe ones for juicing or making desserts with. Combining steak with pear gives the salad a touch of sweetness which works really well. The red pepper adds color and crunch and the simple dressing is just right for this salad.
