It was just youngest and I for dinner tonight so we opted for a great salad with some sliced barbecued steak. She’s been into nibbling walnuts lately so I thought some candied walnuts would be a nice addition. I found this recipe and they came out great. My only issue was that the wax paper stuck to some of the walnuts. Maybe I should have stirred them in the pan a bit more before dumping out to cool… Hardly a recipe for the rest of the salad. It was:
- chopped red lettuce
- alfalfa sprouts
- sliced radishes
- chopped avocado
- sliced mushrooms
The steak was a small tri tip strip I’d frozen previously. After thawing it, I put a bit of olive oil on it, then sprinkled both sides with seasoned pepper and garlic salt. Barbecued about 4 minutes each side, let rest while I finished the salad, the sliced thinly. I have some bottled dressings left over from various parties so I didn’t even make the salad dressing.
Great quick and filling dinner. Plus I’ve got leftovers for lunch tomorrow, always a bonus.
