Turn the steak marinade into a dressing for this refreshing summer salad.
This is hands down my favorite salad right now. I've made it a few times in the past couple of weeks, which is saying a lot since I usually don't repeat recipes unless I'm really in love!

The best thing about this salad is that once the steak is done marinating in the delicious lemon, soy, brown sugar, olive oil & garlic mixture, you turn around and boil it to form it into a dressing for the salad.

It's a simple salad that yields amazing results!

Once the steak is grilled to perfection, it's sliced and placed on top of a bed of fresh arugula and accompanied by grape tomatoes, lemon wedges and walnuts.
