Here’s the question – why would you make steak for a family of four when you can make steak for an army, even though you are only serving dinner to the aforementioned family of four? That’s pretty much The Hubby’s philosophy on, well, any food, but especially when he is grilling steaks.
Me: Do you want to grill steaks for dinner tonight?
Hubby: Sure, I’ll stop and pick some up on the way home.
Me: What are you thinking – flank steak, filets, ribeyes?
Hubby: Let me see what looks good when I get to the store.
Any guesses which he comes home with?
The correct answer is (d) all of the above. I’m not even joking.
Well, at least there’s leftovers to make this…
This Grilled Steak Mango Salad was totally inspired by the Avocado Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. And, of course, the extra Certified Angus Beef® brand steak we had after grilling the other night.
After tasting the dressing, I knew I had to add some mangoes and tomatoes to the salad because we love Mango Avocado Salsa, and I thought they would be perfect for color and a nice contrast in flavors and textures – the freshness and sweetness versus the richness and savoriness (is the a word?!) of the steak and dressing. It really was the perfect summertime meal.
And let’s talk Certified Angus Beef® brand, which is truly a cut above even Choice and Prime steaks. It truly is the best Angus beef available, with demanding quality standards to meet (and more often than not, these expectations are usually exceeded). This is a brand that people have come to rely on for consistently flavorful, tender, and juicy cuts of meat since 1978, and you can now find it in nearly 15,0000 of the most elite restaurants and retailers around the world, like my local Weis Markets. Just use the product locator to find local stores and restaurants where you can pick up Certified Angus Beef® brand.
This Grilled Steak Mango Salad was delicious, and I am sure I will be making it again anytime we have leftover steak.
