Warm Steak Salad
Exact quantity of meat based on what you have to work with:
Salad Dressing -- 1/4 cup of Olive oil and 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, juice of one half lemon, 1 tablespoon of good grainy mustard, or Dijon, 1 tsp. oregano, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper (you can use any salad dressing you like, but I love this combination for this recipe)
1 cup of Boiled quartered potatoes (leftover or made fresh)
1/4 Red onion sliced thin
Romaine lettuce chopped
Green beans (if you have - or canned French style string beans drained)
Slice steak into thin strips
Marinate the potatoes and onions (and green beans) in the Dressing and warm in a microwave for 30 seconds covered. Mix well.
Add the steak (to help warm it) to the marinade.
Chop and wash romaine lettuce for a bed beneath the steak salad.
Place steak on top of salad and toss together to help the dressing work into the meat.
Serve with a crusty loaf of bread!
If you like, you can add 2 halved hardboiled eggs to this and place on top of tossed salad - kind of a twist on a Nicoise salad.
Pairs Well With
I've had this at Diner before, but put my twist on it. It's a yummy hearty, creative way to use leftover steak and potatoes, and is a great meal for girlfriends, hungry kids, and families.
So Simple.... but there's something magical that happens when warm potatoes and steak are teamed with cold salad....
