Steak and Potato Salad with Spicy Caeser Dressing

Salad can be delicious!  Especially when you top it with steak, roasted potatoes and homemeade croutons!  OK, I really don’t have a problem with salad, but these things only help the situation.  You know what else helps the situation?  The spicy Caesar dressing.  It’s easy to whip up and keeps really well, so you can use it for delicious lunches all week!

Here’s how you make it happen:  start by throwing some egg yolks into a bowl.

Egg yolks for the dressing

Whisk in some garlic, chipotle peppers, lemon juice and a bunch of other good stuff.  You’ll be left with a gorgeous and flavourful dressing.

Line everything up that you’d like to have in your salad.  FYI there are also perfect roasted potatoes in the oven at this time 🙂  I also used the home made croutons from this Panzanella Salad recipe.  Don’t underestimate the tastebud pleasing power of the home made crouton!

Salad Ingredients

Once the potatoes are ready to go, throw everything onto a big plate.  This is a dinner entree, so don’t be shy, pile it on!

This what the vegetarian version would look like:

Steakless version. AKA, Roasted Potato and Homemade Crouton Salad

The non-vegetarian version looks like pretty good too!  Just add some steak and drizzle on some of the dressing.   Now you get to eat!!
