Steak Salad with Quinoa, Strawberries and Ginger Sauce

I have always been a lover of lunch fare. I suppose you could call me the lunch lady, but I don't wear a hair net. Lunch is my favorite meal of the day, hands down. Salads and sandwiches lend for so much creativity! Fruits, vegetables, meat and sauces of many kinds. This week I have taken my lunch-loving to a new level. I'm creating a NEW salad or sandwich each day of the week and because I'm in a chipper mood (or something), I'm giving away $$ to a few people who comment on my Facebook lunch posts!

So here we go. My first new and delicious lunch of the week! Steak Salad with Quinoa and Strawberries! It was a home run. I didn't want to drizzle just any dressing over it, so I thought hard about what would fit perfectly with all of these flavors and textures. I remembered how much I love dipping steak into that delicious Ginger Sauce at Benihana and knew it had to be paired with this salad.

The flavors in this salad were meant to be together. If I weren't such a lunch fanatic, I might just eat this every day.

I'm super excited about today's lunch! Any guesses on what it might be? Don't forget to head over to my Facebook page for a chance at some moolah! Have a great day!
