Description

Steak Salad Lettuce Wraps are everything you want in a bite sized appetizer. This recipe is easily adaptable and perfect for last minute plans.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 steak
  • 12 small pieces of lettuce, kale or endive
  • 1/2 carrot, grated
  • 1 green onion, sliced into long strips
  • 1/2 tomato, cut into 1/2” cubes
  • 2 tablespoons parsley or cilantro
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated (preferably with a microplane)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 12 teaspoons honey

Instructions

  1. Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Sear on high heat until it is as cooked as you like (I like medium rare, so about 4-5 minutes)
  2. Slice steak thinly into strips and set aside. Reserve any juice from the steak.
  3. Combine carrot, green onion, tomato, parsley or cilantro, lemon juice and garlic in a medium sized bowl. Add reserved steak juice and salt to taste. Toss with slivered almonds.
  4. In a small bowl, combine mustard and honey and mix to combine.
  5. To serve, lay lettuce leaves out on a platter, add a spoonful of salad and top with a slice of steak. Either drizzle the honey mustard sauce on top or serve on the side as a dipping sauce.
