This Greek Salad with Steak Recipe is a delicious and satisfying entrée salad or hearty enough as a main dish. I like to make extra dressing because it is so tasty.
You can work ahead and gather the ingredients ahead of time including marinating the steak overnight. I like to serve hummus with veggies and pita bread as side dishes. We have a recipe for making your own hummus from garbanzo beans here.

The actual cooking time will vary depending on different factors. Namely, the starting temperature of the beef, thickness, desired level of doneness, and individual oven differences. For best results, allow the meat to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to cooking.

How to Make Greek Salad with Steak
#1. For the first step, get a medium bowl and combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and whisk to combine. Set aside.
#2. Add the steak to a large, sealable freezer bag. Pour half of the balsamic dressing on top and seal tightly. Gently turn the bag to make sure the steak is thoroughly coated in the marinade.
Marinate the steak for at least 30 minutes at room temperature (but not more than 2 hours) or place it in the refrigerator overnight. Transfer the remaining half of the dressing to an airtight container and set aside until ready to use.
#3. When you’re ready to prepare the salad, place the top oven rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 400°F.
#4. Turn the exhaust fan to the highest setting. Heat olive oil in a large oven-safe large skillet over high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the bag. Cook steak on a hot skillet and sear on all sides, approximately 2 minutes per side.
#5. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast the steak to the desired level of doneness, approximately 8 minutes for medium-rare.
**Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness. For this, the steak should be 5-10°F below the desired temperature (e.g., 135°F for medium-rare) when removed from the oven. The internal temp will continue to rise while resting.
#6. Remove steak from oven and transfer to a plate. Cover loosely and set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Making the Greek Salad
#7. Meanwhile, toss the freshly chopped avocado with the lemon juice to prevent browning. Set aside.
#8. Layer the mixed salad greens (or place lettuce). Get the cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, olives, and avocado on a large serving platter and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
#9. Once rested, pat the steak dry. Place it in a serving bowl with the slices of steak placed on top of the salad. Place crumbled Feta cheese on top and serve immediately with the remaining balsamic dressing on the side. Serve and enjoy!
