Steak Salad with Horseradish Dressing


Remember the Beef Tenderloin Roast with Port Sauce we made a couple of days ago? You did not eat all of it did you? Well if you saved some, we are going to make a steak salad with its leftovers. If you ate it all, you will just have to cook up some more steak. That’s never a problem around this house. Grab some of your favorite greens, thinly slice the beef, slice up some radishes and cucumbers, and maybe slice up some leftover potatoes you might have made with the roast. Make up some of the pickled red onions from the recipe below. Make the horseradish dressing from the recipe you see below. Now, artfully arrange this on some plates and dress it and you have another wonderful meal with that tender and flavorful beef.
