1-2tablespoonsMcCormick Smoky Montreal Steak Seasoning
6-8cupschopped romaine lettuce
¼red onionthinly sliced
⅓cupblue cheese crumbles
2slicesthick-cut white bread
Blue Cheese Dressing
1cupmayo (I prefer reduced fat olive oil mayo)
¼cupplain fat free greek yogurt
½teaspoonsalt (or to taste)
¼teaspoonfresh cracked black pepper (or to taste)
2teaspoonsapple cider vinegar
½cuphalf and half or other milk
4ouncescrumbled blue cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Cut texas toast bread into 1-inch cubes and place in a bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle with italian seasoning and garlic powder. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool.
While croutons are baking, prepare the blue cheese dressing. In a blender or food processor combine mayo, greek yogurt, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, vinegar, and milk and pulse until smooth. Add half of the blue cheese crumbles and pulse again until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and gently stir in remaining blue cheese crumbles. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Preheat your grill to medium heat. Prepare your steak by sprinkling generously with the steak seasoning and massage it into the meat with your finger tips (on both sides of the steaks).
Grill steaks 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked to desired doneness (if they are particularly thick or you prefer your steak medium-well they may need a few extra minutes on the grill) Allow steak to rest for 5 minutes on a cutting board, then thinly slice.
Arrange salads with lettuce on the bottom, then top with steak, avocados, red onions, tomatoes, croutons, blue cheese crumbles, and blue cheese dressing. Serve immediately.
Skirt steak would be the ultimate cut of meat for this salad but it is a little pricey and can be difficult to find so if you can't get your hands on some, sirloin works great.
