Food Recipes Speedy Steak and Blackberry Salad 5.0 (1) 1 Review This elegant steak salad is here to bring some originality to dinner at home. Fancy salads can feel like the domain of restaurants, but this quick and easy recipe delivers original flavors in a sophisticated package. The blackberry vinaigrette brings a sweet-tart balance to the savory steak and peppery arugula. Pistachios and goat cheese add richness and complexity to each bite. Serve with rosé to draw out the sweet berry flavors, or a light, earthy red to contrast the juicy steak. P.S. The blackberry vinaigrette is worth making on its own, to serve with grilled chicken breasts or drizzle over a savory yogurt dip.
