The Best Grilled Steak & Beet Salad

5 from 1 vote
This is seriously one of the best salads to have ever touched my tastebuds. It's loaded with protein, fiber and healthy fats, making it a perfect main dish after a day of exploring outdoors.

Servings 2
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes


  • 1 Frying Pan OR
  • foil


  • 2 steaks (100g+ each) 
  • 3-4 cups spring mix greens
  • 1 cup beets, diced
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ cup carrots, shredded or matchstick
  • ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ cup pecans
  • ¼ cup water *for cooking beets
  • 1-2 tbsps cookingoil of choice, *for cooking beets
  • balsamic vinaigrette, to taste


  • 1. Lightly cover both sides of steak with a couple pinches of salt and pepper. Set aside. 
  • 2. Chop beets into equal cubes. (I leave the skin on – peel before chopping if preferred). Toss in olive oil to lightly coat. 
  • 3. Transfer beets to a pan or foil and pour in ¼ cup water. Cook on med-high heat for 13-15 minutes; water should evaporate. 
  • 4. While beets are cooking, prepare mixed greens in a bowl. Cut or shred carrots, slice or dice avocado and crumble cheese; sprinkle on top of mixed greens. 
  • 5. Once beets are done cooking, set aside to cool. 
  • 6. Optional: Pour pecans into a fresh pan or on a sheet of foil (or give the one just used a quick wipe). Roast on med-high heat until aromatic and slightly browned, about 10 minutes. 
  • 7. While pecans are roasting, grill or pan fry steak on med-high heat to preferred doneness. 
  • 8. Once done, sprinkle pecans on top of mixed greens; dress with balsamic vinaigrette, toss and serve into bowls. 
  • 9. Top off with sliced steak.


  • You can swap the mixed greens with any green of your preference (romaine, arugula, etc) 
  • This salad is fantastic without the steak too (tell your vegetarian friends!)
  • This can also be cooked over the campfire, check out our post: How to Gauge the Temperature of a Campfire for Cooking
