Keto Mediterranean Steak and Roasted Vegetables Salad

Here's a 10/10 steak salad that is refreshing and satiating, perfect for dinner. This recipe utilizes seasonal vegetables and pairs them with fresh greens and a fantastic herby dressing. A few spoonfuls of crumbled goat cheese and sunflower seeds can take Keto entree salads to the next level.

What steak cuts can you use for this recipe?

The beauty of this recipe is its versatility. You can use various steak cuts, but we recommend opting for sirloin steak for optimal tenderness and flavor. Sirloin steak offers a good balance between lean meat and marbling, ensuring a juicy and flavorful outcome. You can also use ribeye or New York steak for similar results. For a more economical option, consider flank steak.

How to test the steak for doneness?

Achieving the perfect doneness for your steak ensures a tender and delicious meal. To test the steak's doneness, we recommend using a meat thermometer. For this recipe, the steak is cooked to medium-rare, reaching an internal temperature of 135°F/ 57°C. This temperature ensures a balance between tenderness and retaining the juicy flavors. If you prefer your steak medium-well, cook to 150°F/65°C, and if you like it medium, cook to 145°F/ 63°C. Allow the steak to rest for five minutes before slicing, which helps preserve its natural juices.

How to customize this Keto summer dinner recipe?

Customizing this recipe allows you to make endless varieties of keto salads. You can swap the eggplant and zucchini for any low-carb vegetables you have on hand, such as turnips, asparagus, radishes, and Brussels sprouts. As for the mixed greens, you can replace them with arugula, spinach, or just plain lettuce. You can also make the herby dressing with herbs like mint and coriander. Feel free to swap the goat cheese for gorgonzola, feta, cottage cheese, or leave it out altogether.
