Not too long ago I went to dinner at the Saltgrass Steakhouse with my sister and her family and had this awesome steak salad for dinner. As soon as I had it I knew it was one of those dishes I would recreate at home. It definitely didn’t disappoint and was so quick to put together. I served it to my parents and they both loved it – Dad even went back for seconds which is high praise indeed.
3 tomatoes, diced
4 red potatoes, diced
1/2 lb fresh green beans
4 hard boiled eggs, diced
Prepackaged grilled strips of steak (fajitas package)
For Balsamic vinaigrette dressing (recipe adapted from Oprah.com)
1 1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients for the vinaigrette and whisk well. Place in refrigerator.
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and cook for 20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
Cook green beans according to package instructions. (this is usually done by poking holes in the package and steaming in the microwave for 5 mins., or use a Ziploc steam bag)
Heat steak strips according to package instructions. (this is usually done by heating the meat in a skillet on the stove for 5 mins.)
Add mixed greens, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes and steak together. Mix well to combine. Add vinaigrette and toss to coat. Add hard boiled eggs. Serve immediately.
