This Marinated Skirt Steak Salad with Grapes, Apples, & Feta is loaded with flavor and interesting textures – a must for a good salad. Tender, juicy steak is thinly sliced and served with greens, sweet apples, juicy grapes, a mustard vinaigrette, and feta cheese crumbles. A mix of sweet and savory! It’s like an entree and side salad in one! SO GOOD!



For the Steak:

  • 1 lb skirt steak (or flank steak)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Hefty pinch of salt and pepper
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Dash of hot sauce

For the Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

For the Salad:

  • 68 cups baby arugula
  • 1 large apple, sliced
  • 1 cup red grapes
  • ½ English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • ¼ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese (bleu or sharp cheddar would also be great)


For the Steak:

  1. Mix together marinade ingredients in a shallow bowl or baking dish. Place steak in the dish and submerge in marinade.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours and up to 8 hours, flipping steak halfway through. Bring steak to room temperature before cooking it.
  3. When the steak has finished marinating, preheat your grill or broiler. Place steak on grill and grill for about 3-4 minutes per side (if broiling, use the “high” setting and broil for 1-2 minutes per side). Set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing into strips.

For the Dressing:

Whisk together the ingredients in a bowl, slowly streaming in the olive oil last. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

For the Salad:

  1. Combine the arugula, apples, grapes, cucumber, and red onion in a large serving bowl.
  2. Toss with a little bit of the dressing and then top with the sliced steak and crumbled cheese. Drizzle with more dressing and serve.
