Paleo Salad Week: Delicious Pear Steak Salad

Yesterday I grilled up a considerable amount of meat to have on hand if the days became to busy to properly cook a meal.  Included in this grilling were two large London Broil steaks. 

As I was thinking of preparing dinner tonight and looking around the kitchen I saw a couple pears in our fruit bowl.  Hmmm.... something delicious was brewing in my mind.
