Black & Blue Salad
2 heads of butterhead lettuce
6 oz. Of cold leftover steak,thinly sliced
8 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
6 oz. Bleu cheese
10 tbs heavy cream
2 tbs mayonnaise
1 tbs vinegar (optional)
Beat the heavy cream and mayonnaise together in a small mixing bowl. Crumble half the bleu cheese into the mixture (reserving the other half for a garnish) and stir a few times. Add a drizzle of the vinegar if it is too thick. Chill for at least two hours. (The longer it chills, the more intense the flavor becomes.)
Slice the butterhead lettuce in wedges (or tear into pieces if you prefer) and place on four salad plates. Pour the bleu cheese dressing over the lettuce. Arrange strips of the cold steak (cold filet is outrageously good in this dish!)and four cherry tomato halves over the lettuce. Sprinkle the reserved bleu cheese on top. Give each plate a grind of fresh pepper and serve immediately.
Spring Mix Salad
Good sized handful of spring greens lettuce mix.
Hidden valley ranch dressing package mixed with sour cream instead of mayo (much better that way). Mix a little water and/or cream to get a more fluid consistency.
1 Safeway Select brand Chicken, Parmesan, Mushroom, and Spinach Sausage, sauteed whole (slice when cooked), or any brand that has no carbs/sugar.
A small sprinkling of Planter’s mixed salted nuts instead of croutons (more natural and yummier than store bought croutons).
Toss all ingredients in a salad bowl with a tablespoon or two of your dressing, and you’ll have the most amazing brunch, lunch or dinner. Add a sprinkling of garlic powder and pepper for extra zip).
