Grilled Steak Quinoa Salad

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

How about a lovely quinoa salad with grilled sirloin steak, avocado, roasted peppers, corn and mozzarella cheese?!

Oh my, this is delicious and soooo filling!
I would personally love the veggie version as much as the steak one, but if you feel you need to top up your energy levels and get ready for the week, go for the steak.
I served the salad with some extra hot chilli & honey sauce on a side, I just dipped the steak pieces in it (can’t go without the heat, you know:-).
Why you should go for this salad – on a lazy Sunday, it’s the perfect meal – quick, no fuss, but tasty and healthy!

Here is what you need.

Ingredients:

  • 2 sirloin steaks, grilled and cut into thin strips
  • 300g/10oz quinoa
  • 3 roasted peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 150g/5oz mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 260g/9oz tinned corn

For the dressing:

  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 3tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Preparation:

  1. To prepare the quinoa – follow the instructions on the back of the pack. When ready, leave it to cool down.
  2. In a bowl, combine the salad ingredients. Add the quinoa and mix well.
  3. Mix the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad. Mix thoroughly and serve with some hot sauce on a side(if you can handle it)!
Enjoy!
Tip: As I mentioned, the veggie version is as good as the steak one, so if you prefer, omit the steak and enjoy a veggie quinoa goodness!
