As you know, we love our steaks and steaks make it into our meal rotation quite often. But I also love recreating those steaks into other things too. Frequently, those leftover streaks are turned into delicious salads, especially on those hot dog days of summer. Just like I am always looking for new ways to prepare my steaks, I am also always looking for new salads to showcase the steaks as well. This time, I decided to make it Greek Style.
I started off with a bed of baby spinach, then just kept adding all kinds of other goodies on top. I finished it with the thin steak strips, a tomato vinaigrette, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with a Tomato-Herb Vinaigrette and bleu cheese crumbles for Larry and roasted pepitas for me.
When I make a salad, I make a SALAD. One of my brothers-in-law learned this one day when he thought he was coming over for a light lunch only to be presented with a huge salad instead, filled with all kinds of stuff. I guess that’s the problem when you like EVERYTHING and you like stuff on your stuff. 🙂
This salad consisted of fresh baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumber slices, a mixture of olives, red onions, artichoke hearts and garbanzo beans as the main ingredients, and then the star attraction, the steak, was spread on top of it all.
It was healthy, colorful and very delicious! My kind of salad. Nostimo! (Delicious in Greek).
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
