  • 1/3 cup olive or coconut oil
  • 1 TBS maple vinegar or 1 TBS balsamic vinegar mixed with 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • For the salad:
  • Baby salad mix I use baby kale, baby spinach and baby lettuces
  • 1 apple I used granny smith, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup walnuts tossed with coconut oil and coconut sugar or maple syrup for added sweetness
  • Crumbled blue cheese


  • Mix marinade ingredients in a bowl.
  • Cut steak into 2-inch wide by 4-inch long strips.
  • Lay steak in a large baking dish.
  • Pour marinade over the steak and make sure each piece is thoroughly covered in marinade.
  • Marinate for 30 minute.
  • While the steak marinates, heat griddle over medium heat.
