Red Wine Beef and Avocado Salad Recipe

I'm looking for a nice, simple recipe that would incorporate some fresh flavours as well as being easy to make. After searching for awhile, I stumbled across a recipe I’d written in one of my notebooks (no idea where from!) that looked like a good starting point!

3. Drain each steak then cook on a hot grill or frying pan till medium-rare inside (unfortunately I slightly overcooked mine, but it still tasted great!)

A lovely blend of textures and flavours – the soft avocado, juicy tomato and beef, cool crunchiness from the cucumber with a slight tang from the red wine vinegar! This goes down a treat with a glass of red 😉
