    Default Your favorite steak salad: What's in it?

    Heya folks,

    I have leftover tri-tip from the Fourth. I made a nice steak salad
    last night for work, but it didn't come close to the steak salad I had
    last year at the Plaza Cafe in Santa Fe. I am trying to recreate
    that, at least as much as I can remember. So far, I am caramelizing
    sweet onions, and I might try to saute some mushrooms, to go along
    with it. Blue cheese will be a part of it, I think. Tomatoes too, I
    think.
    The Plaza Cafe one had a corn relish in it too..and I have some TJs
    corn chile relish. I did add some last night, and it was good...

    Which brings me to my question. If you make steak salads, what you
    YOU put in them? I am interested in all your variations... Maybe I
    can get some good ideas from you. I have a LOT of leftover steak...

    P.S. Thai beef salad is on the menu too, but I am currently thinking
    of more an American type steak salad...but I could be interested in
    most variations...

    I can't speak to the steak salad, but their food is just top notch all
    around. Another place in Santa Fe that really stands out in memory is
    La Choza.

    The last steak salad I made and liked, started with mixed salad greens,
    thin sliced red onion, sliced button mushrooms, half moon slices of
    english cucumber, strips of green pepper, halved cherry tomatoes, and
    minced garlic. S&P, tossed, drizzled buttermilk dressing, crumbled blue
    cheese, and thin sliced rib-eye on top.

    Lots of soft, leafy greens. Sliced red onions, lots of cherry or roma
    tomatoes sliced or diced to allow some of the juices to escape when
    tossed. Cukes, cheddar cheese diced up, small diced apples, walnuts,
    mushrooms, red pepper strips-whatever is available.... but to me the
    important part is to dress it properly! I pour on EVOO and toss. Add
    salt and toss, Add vinegar and pepper and toss... the juices in the
    tomatoes and the vinegar meld nicely. The salt and olive oil are
    slightly more generous that my daily salad dressing.

    I make a mixed greens salad and top it with thin slices of leftover
    flank steak, barely warmed past room temp. I know that's not the recipe
    you're hoping for but it's what I do.

    We might use this:

    Seizure Salad

    5 cloves garlic
    1/2 t salt
    1/2 t dry mustard
    1/4 t pepper
    1/4 t cayenne
    2 t worcestershire sauce
    2 T lemon juice
    tabasco sauce
    1 egg
    1/2 C oil
    Romaine lettuce
    Freshly grated Parmesan to taste
    Croutons, optional

    In a blender or mini-food processor, chop the garlic with the salt.
    Add the mustard, peppers, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice.
    Vigorously shake Tabasco into the blender while counting to five.
    Add the egg and oil, and process until creamy. Toss the lettuce
    with enough dressing to cover, and add cheese and croutons.

    It is NOT for the faint of heart.

    Works with steak or grilled chicken.

    Simple is good. As long as the ingredients are good. Same reason why
    straight from the vine tomatoes with S&P a smear of mayo on fresh
    preferably home made bread is one of my most favorite sandwiches.

    I occasionally like how fresh some of the mixed salad greens I have
    enough that I just give it a spritz of something like raspberry vinaigrette.

    It's been years since I made one, but I used
    to do it all the time. In addition to the greens,
    I'd always have minced shallots. And the dressing
    would always be predominantly mustard. By the way,
    Trader Joe's has reduced the price on their Dijon
    mustard by a dollar per jar due to some sort of
    relaxation of price controls in France or something.
    I think I paid $1.69 for my last jar. I'm just
    about to go there, so I'll check the current price.
    Unbelivably cheap for a very good mustard.

    I personally prefer to keep it simple.

    Lettuce, steak sliced into thin strips, avocado and tomato, maybe a
    little bacon bits or some shredded cheese, and lime basted mayo for
    dressing.

    Pic of one without bacon:

    Sure. I neglected to mention the other stuff that I put in my mixed
    greens salads onion, cucumber if available, shredded carrots, radishes
    if available, sweet peppers if available.

    Default Re: Your favorite steak salad: What's in it?

    When we grill steak, we usually grill veggies, too. Zucchini, yellow
    squash, eggplant, peppers, onions etc. I always slice up the leftovers
    and add that to a steak salad. Also, there's usually corn on the cob.
    So I'll slice it off the cob and add that in, too. Typically, I use a
    nice mix of baby greens as the bed. Then layer in halved grape
    tomatoes, the corn off the cob, the sliced grilled veggies. Sometimes
    some thawed frozen peas. I like cucumbers, so I add those. And I like
    sliced carrots, so I add that, too. On steak salad, I like a dressing
    of either honey mustard or ranch. Basically, a steak salad, at our
    house, is whatever is leftover from the steak dinner, on a bed of
    greens. If there's leftover pasta salad, or leftover plain pasta,
    that will go in, but not with corn--don't want the salad too carby.

    Sometimes I do a composed salad, using the ingredients from a Salade
    Nicoise. (thin green beans, boiled potatoes, bed of greens, small
    tomatoes, maybe hard boiled eggs) and instead of the tuna, I'll use
    leftover grilled steak or chicken. This I top with a mustardy
    vinaigrette.

    Steak salad is a wonderful invention. Just have to be careful not to
    put in too much carbs or cheese. Negates the idea of eating a salad!
