Peppered Steak Salad with Low-cal Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue cheese dressing and blue cheese crumbles are a great addition to a salad, but the amount of fat and calories that it adds are not ideal.  So I decided to come up with a lighter option.  Blue cheese has a very strong flavor so a little bit goes a long way.  By putting the cheese crumbles in the food processor and mixing with another creamy cheese I created a healthier alternative.  

Low Calorie Blue Cheese Dressing
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • 1 Laughing Cow Wedge
  • 2 Tablespoon of Skim Milk
Makes enough dressing to serve 3-4 people

For dressing- combine all ingredients in mini food processor and blend for about 20 seconds.  Refrigerate for at about 30 minutes.  You may want to add another splash of milk if the dressing is too thick.

Makes 2-4 Servings depending on salad size you are dressing

Marinade for Steak
  • 2 Tablespoons Fat Free Italian Dressing
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
Combine marinade ingredients in ziploc bag.  Marinate the steak for about an hour.  Grilled to desired temperature

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Pepperocinis 
  • Tomato
  • Cucumber
