Steak & Cheese Salad - Delicious & Easy Low Carb
This evening's dinner was super quick and easy. I had 3 leftover grilled steaks in the fridge from last night's dinner. I decided to use them to make big main dish salads. I sauteed red and yellow mini bell peppers and thinly sliced sweet onions in olive oil until tender. I even had leftover cooked sliced mushrooms to add to my salad (neither hubby or brother eat mushrooms because they consider them all poisonous...LOL). I cut up little heads of baby romaine lettuce, thinly sliced a small carrot, quartered cherry tomatoes and then thinly sliced the cold leftover steaks. I piled the salad fixings in huge pasta bowls. I placed the sliced steaks on a plate (keeping them intact) and then heated them on low-medium in the microwave so it gently heated them without overcooking them. I topped the warmed steaks with big flakes of shaved Grana Padano Parmesan cheese so it would melt on top. I topped the salad mixture with the warm steak and cheese and then added the sauteed onions, peppers and mushrooms and some more cheese. It was the perfect way to use up leftover steak and definitely worth making extra steak just to be able to enjoy a Steak & Cheese Salad. I snapped a couple photos of our salads below. Enjoy!
