Monday's Leftovers: Grilled Steak Salad with Green Beans and Blue Cheese

Monday's Leftovers: Grilled Steak Salad with Green Beans and Blue Cheese

Mondays always seem to be my craziest days, work pulls me in multiple directions and the day goes by faster than I realize. This is why I try to make extra food on Sundays. This time it was an extra bit of Grilled Beef Sirloin and I'm pretty excited to turn it into a cold steak salad with green beans and blue cheese. To join me in a simple Monday meal,

If you have leftover steak like I do, you can either re-heat it in the microwave, over the stove or enjoy it cold.

Grilled Steak Salad with Green Beans and Blue Cheese
From Bon Appétit June 2001

1 pound slender green beans, trimmed
6 cups arugula (about 6 ounces)
4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 1/4 cups pitted Kalamata olives or other brine-cured black olives, halved
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 8- to 9-ounce New York steaks
1 cup crumbled blue cheese

  1. Cook green beans in pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain. Transfer to bowl of ice water and cool. Drain.
  2. Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Combine beans, arugula, tomatoes, and olives in large bowl. Whisk 1/2 cup oil and vinegar in small bowl.
  3. Brush steaks with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Cut steaks crosswise into strips.
  4. Toss salad with enough dressing to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide among 6 plates. Top with steak strips. Sprinkle cheese over.

Makes 6 servings.

The olives will bring a bit of saltiness to the mix, but you can definitely omit them. Toasted walnuts or almonds will bring another crunch, I say with salads do what you like. It's a great way to be inventive and figure out what you enjoy!

Sounds delish, Yum! :DROOL: It's a great idea for leftovers... and I'm always looking for great healthy recipes for leftovers. I would opt for no olives because I don't like them. Would there be another choice to add instead of olives? Say toasted almonds or walnuts?
