Organic Steak Salad


Last night I made this delicious steak salad!  For Valentines day, my husband made a surf and turf and we had some left over steak.  So I sliced it very thinly and topped it on a salad.  But what makes this salad so special are the onion straws that gives this salad so much flavor and quite a crunch.  They are super easy to make and add so much texture and flavor to this salad.  Enjoy!

  4. For the onion straws, cut 1 onion into strips very thinly.
