Steak, Pear and Stilton Salad

Serves 2

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 15 minutes


1 rib-eye, sirloin or fillet steak 
1 chicory or red endive, leaves separated 
1 conference pear, cored and sliced 

For the dressing 

50g Stilton, crumbled, plus extra to garnish 
150g natural yoghurt 
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil plus extra, to serve 
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives plus extra to garnish

All great salads are a combination of contrasting textures and flavours. Here, grilled steak is combined with crisp, juicy pears and creamy Stilton cheese to make an addictive summer salad.

4. Grill the steak to your liking - timings will depend on the thickness and cut of steak. We recommend medium or medium rare for rib eye and sirloin, and rare for fillet.

5. Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. 

6. Arrange the steak, chicory and pears on a plate and top with the dressing, more crumbled Stilton and chives. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
