Grilled Corn & Blueberry Monster Salad with Balsamic Skirt Steak


Grilled corn and blueberries seemed like the perfect combination to savor the last bit of summer. In case you haven’t noticed in my stories, I’m a bit obsessed with grilling corn right now. The char adds another dimension to balance out its natural sweetness. It’s also super easy- just toss the whole cob right on the grill or under a broiler, rotating occasionally, for about 5-10 minutes.

I topped this with a skirt steak in one of my favorite marinades (equal amounts of balsamic and soy sauce) that packs a punch. To keep the balsamic theme going, I used my maple balsamic dressing that’s been a staple of mine for almost a decade.

The crunch: the corn

The creamy: goat cheese

The refreshing: red onion, super thinly sliced zucchini

The sweet: corn & blueberries

Grilled Corn & Blueberry Monster Salad with Balsamic Skirt Steak

Makes 1 Monster Salad or 2 Regular Ones As always… quantities are really just suggestions. You do you.
Servings 2 servings
Total Time 10 mins
  • 1 ear corn, husked and cleaned
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 2-3 cups spinach or other greens of your choice
  • 1/4 cup about 1/4 of a small red onion very thinly sliced red onion (I use a mandoline for this)
  • 1/2 small zucchini, sliced VERY thinly into coins (I use a mandoline for this)
  • 1-2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • Balsamic Marinated Skirt Steak
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette, (one of my fav dressings!! worth making and doing rather than a store bought one, I promise)
  • Preheat grill or broiler. Directly place corn on grill or under broiler for about 5-6 minutes, rotating occasionally for even browning. Let cool slightly and then cut kernels off.
  • Toss everything together except goat cheese. Normally I like to do this in a really big bowl, putting all the items on the bottom and spinach on top. Then add the dressing and toss. Transfer to whatever bowl you plan to eat out of- all the good stuff (corn, blueberries, etc.) will naturally go to the top. Top with goat cheese.
