Ingredients for beef salad

  • Leftover cooked steak or seasoned chops
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 cups torn lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup torn rocket leaves
  • 1 cup torn baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped green or red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yoghurt
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice


  1. Remove any fat, bone or skin from the meat, slice thinly into strips and place in a bowl.
  2. Add the onion, salt and pepper; toss to combine.
  3. Layer the spinach, rocket and lettuce on a salad plate or platter
  4. Top with the meat strips, green/red pepper and olives.
  5. Combine sour cream and lemon juice – taste to see if it needs more salt or pepper before serving drizzled over the salad.

Here’s another dressing option:

Mix together 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons of orange juice and 1 tablespoon of wholegrain mustard. Taste to see if you need to add salt or pepper to taste, and serve alongside the salad for people to help themselves.
