Cold Beef Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
A satisfying way to serve meat with greens. Since this easy marinated beef salad is made the day before, it is then ready the next day with only minor preparation
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 cup virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch black pepper, fresh ground
8 ounces small mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 pounds deli sliced roast beef
5 ounces spring greens
5 ounces baby spinach greens
1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
14 ounces artichoke hearts, drained and halved
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
3 tablespoons feta or blue cheese, crumbled
Makes approximately 3/4 cup
Using a small bowl or a glass jar with lid, combine olive oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix or shake together to blend all ingredients well. Set aside.
This marinade can be doubled when it is made to be served with the salad for anyone desiring to add more for additional flavoring.
If sliced deli beef is not avaiable, any thinly sliced roast beef or steak can be used instead.
Into a medium size bowl, add mushrooms, tomatoes, artichokes, and beef. Pour marinade over all ingredients. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator overnight to allow marinade to soak into contents.
When ready to serve, arrange greens over a dinner plate. Place slices of meat in center of greens and add mushrooms and artichokes hearts.
Garnish salad with fresh parsley and crumbled feta or blue cheese.
