Hangry Beef Recipes Roasted Beef, Fig, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad

Roasted Beef, Fig, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad

We’re taking the combination of figs, walnuts and blue cheese to the next level by adding some roasted beef.

We all know and love the beautiful combination of figs, walnuts and blue cheese. In this recipe, we’re taking it to the next level by adding some delicious roasted beef. This Roasted Beef, Fig, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad is the perfect dish to enjoy on a hot summer’s day.

We’re keeping it simple when it comes to the roasted beef. Season the steak with some oregano, turmeric and salt, and marinate it in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We suggest searing the beef in a hot pan until it has reached medium temperature. The balsamic flavour coming from the marinade also pairs beautifully with the figs used in the salad.

CHEF’S TIP FOR BLUE CHEESE IN SALAD

The taste of blue cheese can be quite overwhelming. So when buying your ingredients for this recipe, be sure to buy an appropriate type of blue cheese for your palette. If you’ve never had blue cheese before, try a few and see what works best for you!

It’s completely understandable why most people are a bit scared of the potent blue cheese flavour. However, mixed in with the figs and walnuts, the blue cheese becomes such an important component with this fusion of flavours. 

And finally, drizzle a few drops of your (super easy) homemade salad dressing, and you’re good to go! Remember to add the olive oil slowly to the rest of the dressing ingredients for it to emulsify. Otherwise, you run the risk of the vinegar and oil staying separated.
