Leftover salads

The steak and chicken both resulted in additional dinners using up the leftovers in salads.  The lemon garlic steak was great on top of a vegetable salad with a new dressing and is easily adaptable to your favorite veggies and/or dressings.  The chicken was the latest entrant in my ongoing competition for the best chicken salad.  This is definitely in the running!

Salad with leftover steak

This vinaigrette is excellent and paired well with the steak.  For the salad itself use whatever greens and vegetables you like and/or have on hand.  (I had leftover potatoes, tomatoes and avocado).

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 TB balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Combine egg, mustard, vinegar, garlic and shallot with 1 TB water in a food processor or blender.  With the machine on, slowly drizzle in the oils until incorporated.  Season with salt and pepper and use as dressing on your salad.


Chicken Salad

  • chopped chicken from spicy grilled chicken
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise (more or less to taste)

Combine all ingredients.  Enjoy on top of lettuce or as a sandwich.
