I like to use leftovers and I love salads!
What better way to use up the leftover grilled ribeye steak than on a bed of crispy salad greens and top it with homemade salad dressing, shredded cheddar cheese, and bacon pieces?
We had some leftover steaks that kinda cooked longer than we like’m to, (it wasn’t quite as “done” as it looks in these pics, really) so I decided to make Steak and Onion Salad.
Usually I stir-fry a cheaper cut of steak for this dish. Sometimes I sauté the onions or sometimes I used fresh green onions or sliced Vidalias. Sometimes I even throw both on there! I’m liking onions, okay?
Sorry, there’s no real recipe for this. I just throw together a salad using my favorite salad ingredients, top it with the grilled steak, dressing, and peppercinis.
Steak and Onion Salad with Creamy Homemade Dressing (Lower Carb)
Your favorite salad greens: baby lettuces, radicchio, endive, butter…
I used Fresh Express prepackaged.
Shredded cheddar cheese
real bacon pieces
cucumbers, peeled, sliced, quartered (my DD did this 🙂 )
grape tomatoes, quartered
sliced yellow onion or green onions
steak, grilled or stir-fried and sliced into strips
To serve: Toss tomatoes, cucumbers and salad greens and other salad ingredients in a large salad bowl. Place portions in individual salad bowls. Add steak and onions. Serve dressing alongside.
Ok, don’t laugh, this is not a fancy-schmancy recipe, I usually just throw together some type of mayo based salad dressing. I can’t stand the bottled stuff. Not sure if this is kinda like a homemade Thousand Island, maybe? Nevertheless, it’s pretty good. 🙂
Creamy Homemade Dressing
1/2 cup mayo
1 T Heinz LC ketchup
1 tsp mustard
1 T peppercini juice
a dash of spices: salt, pepper, garlic powder
1 pkt Splenda, optional (if you prefer a sweeter dressing)
Mix all together in a small bowl. If you prefer a thinner dressing, add some water or milk.
For a great low carb dessert, what about Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Pie?
