The Best Grilled Steak & Beet Salad

Recipe score:

This is seriously one of the best salads to have ever touched my tastebuds. It’s loaded with protein and fibre, making it a perfect main dish after a day of exploring outdoors. 

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cooking Method: Grill, campfire, campstove

Cooking Time: 13+ mins

Yield: 2


  • 2 steaks (100g+ each) 
  • 3-4 cups spring mix greens
  • 1 cup beets, chopped (approx 2 med) 
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup carrots, shredded or matchstick
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, or other soft cheese, crumbled 
  • 1/2 cup pecans 
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1-2 tbsp oil
  • 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 and pour in 1/4 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. 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, approx 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. 

Voilà! Your Best Steak & Beet Salads are ready to go!
