Steak Salad

I found a little gem at the grocery store last week!  A package of sirloin steak marked down to $2.41.  You could do this meal using iceberg, romaine or other favorite lettuce.  I don’t recommend bagged lettuce unless it is on sale for at least 50% off its original price.  Using a fresh head of lettuce is cheaper and will keep the cost down.  That is, of course, if you don’t mind chopping it up!

I might just have to make this again when my lettuce and tomatoes are ready for harvest!  Hubs could grill the steak. Yum!!!

And this dressing I take NO credit for.  I saw Rachael my new BFF make it for a tomato salad last week and thought it would be PERFECT for this Steak Salad. 😉

    Thanks! I just happen to have some leftover barbecued steak and all of the other ingredients in the house, so this is what I will make for dinner tomorrow.

    I am aways on the lookout for deals–you need to go into the store with an open mind, not a menu plan that you are not willing to deviate from. My blog is about meals for the family as well so please come on by.

    Thanks! What a great inspiration… I had to go to the grocery store this morning and stumbled upon a ‘managers special package’ of 2 small bottom round steaks with a $1 off Q. Smaller size, Good price + dollar off? When I walked past the case again, I noticed there were two more…Of course they went in my cart. I picked up some lettuce, a couple tomatoes and a bag of day-old dinner rolls from their bakery. One and a half steaks were grilled for the salad. The rest of the steaks went to the freezer for future salads.
    Good dinner!
