Easy Steak Salad Recipe

grilled slices steak and green lettuce salad recipe
This steak salad recipe is very simple, and it makes a very filling and tasty main dish.  Lettuce greens are dressed in the olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and topping with a hot sliced steak.If you have any leftover steak, a main dish salad is a great way to use it.  You can just warm the leftover steak in the microwave, then slice it and put it on a salad.  Or you can cook the steak on a frying pan just for this salad – cooking steak takes just a few minutes per side.

Another great thing about using sliced steak in a salad is that you can use the cheapest steak.  When you are eating the whole steak as a main dish, the kind of steak really matters.  When you are thinly slicing the steak and putting it on a salad, the difference between various kinds of steaks is minimal.
