Steak Salad with Blue Cheese Horseradish Dressing. Sort of just rolls off the tongue doesn’t it? Probably because there is so much that’s right about this salad, like steak cooked to your liking (I like mine run through a warm room), paired with blue cheese and horseradish, both perfectly suited for steak and crisp green salad with juicy cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber and red onion. Not to mention this salad is ridiculously easy to put together AND it’s also impressive company fare.
Yeah, this Steak Salad with Blue Cheese Horseradish Dressing pretty much has it all going on. Pair it with a nice Cabernet Sauvignon, like Santa Carolina or Liberty School and it’s a party.
Steak Salad with Blue Cheese Horseradish Dressing
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsps prepared horseradish
1 tbsp lemon juice
2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
6 cups romaine lettuce, washed and torn into bite size pieces
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2 baby cucumbers, sliced
1/2 cup red onion, sliced thinly
In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, horseradish, lemon juice, blue cheese and pepper. Season with salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready.
Season the beef with salt and pepper and let come to room temperature. Grill the steak to your liking. Remove from heat and tent with foil to let rest for 10 minutes. Slice on the diagonal into strips.
While steak is resting, toss the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and red onion with the blue cheese horseradish dressing. Top with sliced steak and serve immediately. (Serves 6)
Pleasantville Note: Any steak works well with this. Flank is great steak and very budget-friendly when serving a crowd. If you really love them though, you can also try sliced beef tenderloin on top.
