We don’t eat a lot of beef in our house. Not because we don’t like it, trust me, my husband asks for steak all the time. It’s because I like my steak grilled. I’ve seen cooking shows pan fry a steak, and to me, that is a total injustice to the meat. I find grilled meat so much more flavourful. And if I’m going to spend money on steak, it’s got to be grilled. But when the snow flies, the temperature drops, and the sun sets early, no one wants to head outside to BBQ!
Now that spring is in the air, the weather is warming up, and the sun is out longer, it’s time to fire up the grill again! I took pictures of this Healthy Beef Noodle Salad last summer, and the pictures have been sitting on the computer for months. Actually, I had forgotten they were even there until we switched computers last month and I had to reorganize my photos. Well thank goodness I did, because this salad is absolutely delicious.
This salad is loaded with healthy ingredients:
- whole wheat noodles
- lean flank steak
And the dressing sends this salad over the top with it’s tangy orange flavour!
Check out all those fresh veggies. My husband and I love this Healthy Beef Noodle Salad. The crunchy veggies paired with the grilled steak and noodles are such a great combination. My kids will eat this salad too, but they prefer to have it all separated on their plate: a pile of noodles, a couple strips of steak, and a side of fresh veggies. Personally, it doesn’t matter to me how they eat it because I know they are getting a healthy meal no matter what.
If you want to cut back on calories with this meal, then just add a little less whole wheat spaghetti.
The next time you feel like firing up the grill, I highly recommend making this salad. And when you do, I would love to know what you think…so head on over to my Facebook page and let me know 🙂
