Balsamic Asparagus and Steak Salad

Balsamic Asparagus and Steak Salad

This hearty Steak and Asparagus Salad isn’t just tasty, it’s good for you too. Lean steak has lots of protein and asparagus is a great source of folic acid and vitamins. It is also a great salad if you are watching your weight because it is filling without being too high in calories. You can use as much or as little of the dressing as you like and because it contains the punchy flavours of balsamic vinegar and wholegrain Dijon mustard a little of it goes a long way. (You can use ordinary Dijon mustard if you prefer, you may just want to use a bit less.)

Steak and Asparagus Salad is a great way to convince your favourite carnivore that salad can be delicious, hearty and filling. It also takes just minutes to throw together.
