Pittsburgh Steak Salad with Sweet Potato Fries

Those of us from Pittsburgh have a habit of putting french fries on everything. Making even the healthiest of salads unhealthy – but delicious – with a fried potato topping. Trust me, once you give this a try you will not complain.

Steak Salad

To save time, this recipe uses frozen french fries. But you can of course make your own! And another hint, if you don’t enjoy the strong taste of onion simply rinse the sliced onion in cold water. This will remove that intense bite.

1/2 lb flank steak
6 cups spinach
1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1/4 cup feta cheese
Frozen fries
Preferred salad dressing

Begin by preparing frozen french fries.

As the fries cook, preheat a grill pan (or the grill if you are lucky and its warm). Lightly season your flank steak with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for just a few minutes on each side. Set aside to rest before slicing (against the grain).


Assemble your salad with the remaining ingredients, top with steak and sweet potato fries.
