Makes 1 servings
- For the salad:
- 4 oz baby potatoes (mix of purple, red, & golden)
- 3-4 oz strip steak
- 2 cups mixed greens
- 1 scallion, sliced
- 1/4 cup baby tomatoes, sliced
- 1 Tbsp goat cheese, crumbled
- For the dressing:
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of black pepper
How to make it
To boil potatoes, place in pan of water and bring to boil. Simmer until potatoes are tender (about 10-12 minutes), and drain. Let cool before slicing into halves or quarters. (You could also microwave if short on time.)
To cook steak, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and place in skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook until desired degree of doneness, remove from heat, and let cool for about 5 minutes before slicing.
To make the dressing, mix together the balsamic, oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried rosemary in a small bowl.
In a large bowl, combine mixed greens, tomatoes, sliced potatoes, and scallions. Toss with the dressing.
Place on serving plate, and add the sliced steak and goat cheese on top.
