Monday's Leftovers: Steak Salad

Monday's Leftovers: Steak Salad

I'm a really big fan of salads, in fact I once went through this 9-month phase where I ate one everyday. There's something about them that is just nice and refreshing, and even though they usually consist of veggies only, they're often quite filling. However sometimes you just need something more than veggies. When that time comes along, I love to top my salads with some leftover chicken or steak. If you have any of yesterday's Shiraz-Soy Tri-Tip left, I suggest you give this recipe for steak salad a try. To check out the recipe,

Steak Salad
From Giada De Laurentiis

1/2 head romaine lettuce, cut into bite-size pieces
1 large head Belgian endive, thinly sliced crosswise (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced into rings
3 cups fresh baby arugula
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
4 ounces Gorgonzola, coarsely crumbled
Red Wine Vinaigrette, recipe follows
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound steak (such as New York, rib-eye or filet mignon), pan-fried or grilled and chilled

In a large bowl, combine the romaine lettuce, Belgian endive, red onion, baby arugula and cherry tomatoes, and half of the cheese. Toss the salad with enough vinaigrette to coat. Season the salad with salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange the salad on a platter.

Cut the steaks crosswise into thin slices. Arrange the steak slices atop the salad and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Drizzle more vinaigrette over the steak slices and serve.


Red Wine Vinaigrette:
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup olive oil

Mix the vinegar, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper in a blender. With the machine running, gradually blend in the oil.

Yield: 1 2/3 cups

Love steak these days, but not sure about the gorgonzola. Maybe I'll do feta instead!
