Leftover Steak Salad

I’m usually pretty creative about using up leftovers, but sometimes leftover steak kind of stumps me. I know, lots of you are thinking “Leftover steak, what on earth is she talking about?” But when I make something like Grilled Flat Iron Steak With Chimichurri Sauce or Cuban Flank Steak, there will always be leftovers. I don’t like re-heated steak so a salad seems like a good way to use the leftover meat, and this Leftover Steak Salad with Feta Vinaigrette and Kalamata Olives made a great summertime lunch.

This recipe is totally simple, but what makes it worth remembering is the idea of combining the dressing and feta cheese and mixing them together well, which insures that every bite of salad has some of that great Feta cheese flavor. With only five ingredients and using a bottled dressing, this is definitely an easy recipe, something most people seem to like!

There are any number of wonderful things you could add to this that would taste great with the Feta dressing, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, sliced red pepper strips, boiled eggs, hearts of palm, or artichoke hearts.

  3. Arrange lettuce on serving plate, lay steak strips over lettuce and pile olives in the center of the salad.

  1. I love steak salads – actually, all summer long I add a bit of meat to the grill for ‘leftover’ salads. They’re so quick the next day!
    Yours is very pretty! And with Feta and Kalamata….heaven!

  2. I wish my leftover looked that great!

  3. Now that my family at home is down to 4 (from 8, more if the kids brought friends), I have leftovers more often. I have used leftover steak in a slad wih blue cheese and a dijon vinaigrette. I will give your version a try!

  4. What a great combo of my favorite ingredients! I rarely have leftover steak, but will try to now. 🙂 Thanks for the idea!

  5. Ruth, I agree, nothing like Feta and Kalamata olives together. One of my absolute favorites!

    Pat, good, husband-pleasing salads are always a good thing.

    Lisa, you’re welcome. Goat cheese is great too. Actually I never met a cheese I didn’t like.

  6. Thanks for the link, Kalyn! The salad sounds and looks fab. I love love love leftover steak in a salad. I’m thinking of how good goat cheese would also be on this (though I like feta, too).

  7. That is a salad my husband would eat and ask for seconds, Kalyn! 🙂

  8. Some great salad ideas. Thanks for sharing. And what could be better than feta and kalamata olive combo.
