This entree-style Whole30 Grilled Steak Salad serves 8, so we’re thinking: small dinner party, your favorite people in the backyard, tasty smells coming from the grill, twinkle lights in the background as the sun goes down.
This Whole30 Grilled Steak Salad is especially good in the summertime when peaches are in season and ripe. (Bonus points if you can source the peaches AND the greens fresh from your local farmers’ market.) The steak and peaches are both cooked on the grill, allowing you to avoid heating up your kitchen by using the stovetop or oven.
Use the accompanying vinaigrette recipe if you have plenty of time to prep—but if you’re in a crunch, our Made By Whole30 Creamy Balsamic is a great convenience option. The creamy and tangy flavor mingles perfectly with savory steak, sweet peaches, and crisp, fresh greens.

Make the Peach Vinaigrette
- In a blender or food processor, combine the peach, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, mustard, and 1 tablespoon coconut aminos. Cover and blend or process until well combined. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Make the Salad
- In a small bowl, combine the 1⁄2 cup coconut aminos, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place the steak in a large resealable plastic bag; add the marinade. Seal and turn to coat the steak. Marinate in the refrigerator, turning occasionally, at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
- Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the marinade. Arrange the steak on the grill rack. Grill, turning once halfway through, until cooked to desired doneness, 12 to 15 minutes for medium (145°F).
- Transfer the steak to a cutting board; tent loosely with foil to rest, 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain.
- Meanwhile, brush the peaches with the avocado oil; arrange on the grill rack, cut sides down. Grill until the peaches have grill marks, rotating once halfway through, 5 to 6 minutes.
- To serve, divide the salad blend among 8 serving plates. Top with the steak, avocado, peaches, bacon, onion, and pecans. Drizzle with the vinaigrette.
