  • Air Fryer or Oven (please adjust oven temp up 50 degrees for the same results)


  • 1 New York Strip Steak
  • 4 tbsp Red Wine Vinaigrette
  • 1 half Red Onion
  • 5 oz Baby Romaine one store bought container
  • 2 oz Smoked Bleu Cheese approximately half a 5oz package (regular bleu cheese can also be used)
  • 5 oz Grape Tomatoes approximately half a 10oz package
  • 1 handful walnuts I already had walnuts, but sunflower seeds can also be used


  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees. While you are waiting, season the steak with salt and pepper.
  • Air fry the steak for 9 minutes.
  • Dice one half of a red onion, and slice grape tomatoes in half. Add to a large salad bowl with a handful of walnuts or sunflower seeds and half a package of bleu cheese crumbles.
  • Add baby romaine to the bowl, coat with red wine vinaigrette, and toss to combine.
  • Let the steak rest for five minutes before thinly slicing.
  • Top the salad with the slices of steak and additional bleu cheese crumbles.


All air fryers cook at different speeds.  These recipes are meant to be a general guide.  Cooking times depend on various factors including thickness, cut, and type of meat used.  I use an Instant Pot Vortex Plus shelf air fryer.  If you're using something different, especially a bucket type air fryer, I advise keeping an eye on food so it doesn't under, or overcook.
