Alright I found a good one here. I was jonesing to get out on the BBQ and veggies are delicious. Enter this steak salad I found at https://www.joyfulhealthyeats.com/ribeye-steak-salad-recipe-balsamic-vinaigrette/

It will certainly make its way into the regular routine plus it’s a great way to use up all your veggies.

  5. Make the balsamic vinaigrette, add dijon mustard, garlic clove, dry basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper to a bowl and whisk until combined. {sometimes I just put everything in a mason jar and shake} Set aside.
  6. Next, bring a small pot of water to a boil.
  7. Add fresh green beans cut to pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes and immediately throw in an ice bath to shock them and stop the cooking process. {this is called “blanching”}
