Paleo Steak Salad with Garlic Herb Dressing


Last week I was browsing the internet for paleo recipes and I came across a recipe for steak salad on the Health and Mojo website. I took some inspiration from this recipe and also made some changes and made it my own.

The salad recipe makes one serving, but the sauce recipe makes enough for roughly 4 salads so you can keep making them throughout the week! I fried up 4 wild deer chops so I would have leftovers for a few more salads too.

You could use any type of wild game, or even beef for this recipe.

Steak Salad


3 cups organic field greens
1/8 cup diced cucumber
2 tbsp finely diced red onion
1 small avocado, peeled and diced
1/4 cup diced tomato
1 steak, cooked (wild game or beef)
4 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
chives, finely diced


Fry up the steak while you are cutting the veggies and preparing the salad. Also fry the bacon and then dry and crumble it. Blend up your sauce when everything is almost done and serve immediately.

Garlic Herb Dressing


1/3 cup olive oil
1 egg
Juice of 1 lemon
1 garlic clove
1 tsp organic, gluten free dijon mustard (or 1/4 tsp ground mustard seed)
4-6 fresh basil leaves
Salt and pepper to taste


Combine everything in blender and mix until it starts to thicken up. Keeps in the fridge for a few days. Pour roughly 1/4 of the recipe on top of your salad. Sprinkle chives on top!

  1. i know this post was a while ago but I found it browsing around… anyway, in the dressing there are eggs… is it okay to eat raw eggs even if its properly refrigerated?

    1. Well I do know there is some skepticism about eating raw eggs, but it is also quite common. Many years ago I suspected food poisoning from raw eggs, but since then I’ve eaten tons of paleo mayo and I’ve been fine! I am sure if you are careful of the source and make sure they are good quality organic and pastured eggs then you will be ok. BUT I am not qualified to give you a scientific opinion on that ๐Ÿ˜‰ But yes keep it refrigerated at all times.

      1. I used to have raw eggs all the time…. great in banana breakfast shakes. However chickens can be carriers of Salmonella and can be transferred to their eggs. I think as long as you are aware and take precautions like proper storage etc you will be fine.

      2. Yes you make a good point there! I actually have gotten food poisoning off raw egg in cookie dough once. Although I have eaten raw eggs a million times with no problem. I did some research at the time and I think its something like 1 in 30,000 eggs has salmonella (don’t quote me on that though, I cant remember exactly!) Proper storage and handling is key like you said!

      3. My Dad back in the day.. late 60’s till mid nineties was both farmer and provincial meat/food inspector in Alberta. I think salmonella was more prevalent then and more of a concern. I raise chickens and wash the eggs well before they enter my fridge just to be safe. I still taste raw batter, cookie dough, and instead of protein powder I still use egg for protein in my smoothie. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My egg nog at Christmas is to die for.
