This sweet and savory balsamic raspberry steak salad with homemade dressing is one of my favorite summer recipes because it’s got a tangy fresh flavor!

I love adding contrasting ingredients to salads from creamy avocado to sweet raspberry to balsamic vinegar, it has a variety of textures. Every fork full and bite you get something different in this balsamic raspberry steak salad!

Salads are a great weeknight option and they don’t have to be boring. Add a protein, some extra toppings and try a homemade dressing to change it up. I cook extra steak because I love this easy marinade and to use for leftover lunches.
