Steak and Arugula Salad has been on repeat in my house lately! I prefer my Balsamic Marinated Steak, but you can use any steak you choose. What really makes this salad amazing is a simply yet delicious dressing! What makes this salad amazing is you can make it the day before, dressing and all and it does not get soggy. Arugula holds up nicely. If you are using any other type of lettuce, I do not suggest putting the dressing on until you are ready to eat it.
How to make Steak & Arugula Salad:
Start by making the dressing, you want to allow it to sit ideally for at least 15 minutes. You can make a big batch of dressing in advance it will stay good in the fridge for up to 4 days. Add 2-3 tablespoons of dressing to 2 cups of Arugula and toss, massaging the dressing in and softening the Arugula. Add the tomatoes, onion, steak and pepper. You can use hot steak if using Arugula, if you are using a different kind of lettuce, I will allow it to cool. Hot steak can make the salad a soggy.
Don't have steak? You can easily sub my Pork Bites, they are delicious as well! You can change it up by sautéing the peppers and or onions if you choose. I am creature of habit and can eat the same thing day after day just by making little modifications to it, adding a different sauce, veggie, ect. Are you able to eat the same thing over and over? Or are you a eat once and done type person?Print
