Clean-Out-The-Fridge London Broil Salad

June 2009 090

Do you usually have leftovers after a meal of London broil? Me too, and if you heat them up, the meat gets overcooked and dried out. Leave it unheated and it’s great in a sandwich, but sometimes there’s just more than you can eat in one meal, and you can’t face another night of plain old cold sliced beef. Here’s a great alternative and it doesn’t really involve a real recipe. Just peek into your cupboards and fridge and use what you’ve got. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll be buying an extra large slab of London broil just to have the leftovers for this recipe.

Here’s what I used:

Quantities are up to you, according to your taste:

leftover London broil, sliced thinly and cut into bite-sized pieces

celery

roasted red peppers

hot pepperoncini peppers

artichoke hearts

sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil

olives

red onion

capers

parsley

Cut all the ingredients in bite-sized pieces, or mince (parsley, capers, etc.)

Add to the cold meat, along with some salt, pepper, a little bit of olive oil and some vinegar.

Toss everything together in a bowl and serve over lettuce leaves.

Linda you are so right! I do the same thing because I hate overcooked meat! You did a great job cleaning out your fridge!

I LOVE "clean out the fridge" recipes! I'm a leftover-phobe, so I'm always looking for way to quickly re-use them1
