Summer Steak Salad

It’s a great time to be enjoying the bounty that Niagara has to offer. The local farmers markets are stocked up during the summer. It’s a great place to pick up ingredients for an easy summer salad.

I know you know how to make a salad. I’m not performing any David Copperfield-level magic over here. But here’s how I put it together.

I love love loooove steak and blue cheese, and I rarely make a meal that doesn’t include sautéed onions and peppers. The sweet Ontario corn is just the perfect element of sweetness to cut the blue cheese tang.
