Steak and Gorgonzola Salad Recipe Overview
Steak and Gorgonzola salad is the perfect dish for the night after your weekend steak dinner. The filet I grilled on Friday night was from Chris’ Specialty Meats and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked medium rare.
Even after my leftovers were refrigerated overnight, the meat was gorgeous and tender. Slice it when you take it out of the refrigerator while it is still firm and then let it come to room temperature.
Note on the Gorgonzola Dressing:
For the Gorgonzola dressing, put some mayonnaise in a Pyrex measuring cup and then mix in some minced onions. Add the crumbled cheese and some white pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Proportions depend on your taste but if you need some guidance see my recipe for blue cheese dressing that goes with the Canned Asparagus recipe on this site.
I like a mild Gorgonzola but you might like a more pungent blue veined cheese. This Steak and Gorgonzola salad recipe is flexible – do what you like!

How do I make a steak and Gorgonzola salad?
There are several ways and various ingredients cooking enthusiasts use to make this recipe. You can begin by seasoning your steak (such as a tender cut like sirloin or ribeye) with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Grill or pan-sear it. Let it rest before slicing thinly. Toss mixed greens or Romaine lettuce with cherry tomatoes, red onions, and crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (or just the Gorgonzola dressing). Add the steak slices on top. For dressing, you can opt to use a balsamic vinaigrette or a Gorgonzola dressing.
How to make steak for a salad?
When preparing steak for a salad, choose a tender cut like sirloin, ribeye, or flank steak. Season it generously with salt, pepper, and any other preferred spices. Cook the steak in a preheated skillet or grill over medium-high heat, aiming for medium-rare to medium, as it continues to cook slightly when removed from heat. Let it rest for a few minutes, then slice against the grain into thin strips for easy eating and a tender bite in the salad.
What to serve with a steak and Gorgonzola salad?
A steak and Gorgonzola salad pairs well with sides that complement its rich flavors. Consider serving it with crusty bread or garlic bread to soak up the dressing. Roasted vegetables like asparagus or bell peppers add a nice contrast. For a heartier meal, you can include a grain dish such as quinoa or couscous. A light red wine or a crisp white wine also makes an excellent accompaniment.
What is Gorgonzola dressing?
Gorgonzola dressing is a creamy and flavorful salad dressing made with Gorgonzola cheese, a type of blue cheese. It typically includes ingredients like buttermilk or sour cream for creaminess, mayonnaise for richness, a dash of vinegar or lemon juice for acidity, and seasonings like garlic, salt, and pepper. The dressing has a tangy, slightly sharp flavor from the Gorgonzola, which pairs wonderfully with salads, particularly those with steak or robust greens.
