Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak Salad

Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak Salad

I’m using yesterday’s leftover flank steak, a Balsamic Flank Steak recipe for a simple tossed salad tonight. I often use leftover chicken, seafood or steak to top a salad the next day. It’s a trick restaurants use to utilize leftover cooked proteins (think Caesar Salads topped with proteins), why not incorporate it into your own menu planning?

No leftover flank steak? Leftover shredded chicken or turkey would be a great stand-in – a sliced ripe pear would be a delicious vegetarian option.

The blue cheese is optional, as well. If crumbled feta or goat cheese are what’s in your fridge, by all means, substitute one of those cheese for the blue.
