It’s a Lunch Thing … Asian Steak Salad
Lunch is one of the most difficult meals of the day, not because it’s actually
difficult, but because it always seems like you’ve just finished clearing away
breakfast and you’re in no mood to start hauling food out of the refrigerator
again. On days when we’re busy and we want something quick, I often try to
make use of leftovers. In this case, it’s a piece of barbecued steak that
amazingly got stored in the fridge the night before, because not a soul could
squeeze in one more mouthful.
Sliced thin, across the grain, the leftover steak makes a respectable meal when
paired with the Asian Island Crunch Salad Kit by Dole. I sprinkle the steak
with a few drops of water to moisten it, pop it in the microwave for 40 seconds
or so, drop it on the salad and top it off with the Dole condiments kit, give it a
good toss and voila — lunch is served!
Dole’s Asian Island Crunch Salad Kit includes a delicious variety of thoroughly
washed and chopped iceberg and romaine lettuces, red and green cabbage,
grated carrots, and crisp snow peas. Toppings include, toasted, slivered
almonds, dried pineapple bits, crunchy chow mein noodles and Dole’s own
Sesame Ginger dressing. The dressing has a lot of flavour, so you rarely need
What Dole says: Not including the steak, it’s only got 150 calories per 1-1/2
cups and 8 g of fat.
What This Sweet Wife says: I LOVE this salad, it’s light, quick, easy and keeps
me going for hours! The toppings are awesome!
Tip: this works with leftover chicken, pork or even canned tuna. If you
haven’t got any of those … just serve as is and enjoy!
