Salad with leftovers

We had flank steak on Saturday night and there was plenty leftover. I made brussels sprouts with pancetta and there were leftovers of those too. I decided to make a salad with all of my leftovers. This could easily adapt to whatever you have on hand – think of it like a kitchen sink salad. Here is what I did:

Flank Steak Salad

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup red wine vinegar
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 TB Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1 bag baby spinach
  • leftover flank steak or protein of your choice
  • veggies of your choice (I used my leftover brussels sprouts)
  • anything else you want to throw in (I added a few small chunks of cheese)

Combine egg, olive oil, vinegar, pepper, mustard, oregano and sugar in a blender.  Blend until smooth.  Wash and dry spinach and place in a salad bowl.  Top with some of the dressing (it makes a generous amount of dressing – we have about 1/2 in the fridge for another night) and chop well to mix.  Add whatever else you want and toss well.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
