  • For the Salad:
  • 2 cups mixed greens (lettuce, spinach, arugula, etc.)

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced

  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

  • 4-6 ounces leftover grilled steak, sliced

  • For the Blue Cheese Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  • Preparing the Blue Cheese Dressing:
  • In a small bowl, combine the crumbled blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, white wine vinegar, minced garlic, and a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  • Mix everything until well combined. You can adjust the thickness of the dressing by adding more sour cream or vinegar as desired. Set aside.
  • Assembling the Salad:
  • In a large salad bowl, layer the mixed greens.
  • Add the halved cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, and thinly sliced red onion on top of the greens.
  • If your leftover steak is cold, you can reheat it quickly in a skillet over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes, just until it’s warm.
  • Arrange the warm sliced steak on the salad.
  • Serving the Salad:
  • Drizzle the prepared blue cheese dressing over the salad.
  • Sprinkle the chopped walnuts or pecans on top for added crunch and flavor.


  • If you prefer your steak to be hot, you can briefly heat it in the microwave or a low oven before adding it to the salad. However, it’s important not to overcook it to maintain its tenderness.
  • Customize your salad by adding ingredients like avocado slices, croutons, or bacon bits for extra texture and flavor.
