balsamic steak and berry salad... 25 minutes

the goods:

3-4 steaks of your choice (I used rib-eye)
steak seasoning (if you have access to Stagner, it's amazing, otherwise Montreal seasoning works fine)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 bag spring salad mix
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/4 cup praline pecans

balsamic vinaigrette:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper

Heat a grill to medium-high. Rub steaks with oil then seasoning. Clean and lightly oil hot grates. Grill steaks for 5 minutes, flip and then 3 more minutes until medium-rare (cooking time with vary depending on what kind of steak you use). Transfer steaks to a plate and let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing into strips or cubes (depending on your preference).
In a mason jar, combine all vinaigrette ingredients, put lid on, and shake to combine.
Portion salad mix, berries, and steak onto individual plates. Drizzle with dressing, then top with blue cheese and pecans.
