Steak and Potato Salad

Grilled Creamer potatoes are tossed with tender juicy steak and greens, in this delicious entree salad.










That's why I've totally fallen in love with these BBQ Ready kits. Since I usually make my own foil packets for potatoes, I love that I can skip a few steps, with these BBQ Ready kits.

I am not a steak eater, but decided to treat the family. We love potato salad, but I wanted to create something that could pass as a main dish. Paired with tender juicy steak and greens, this salad is a great and simple weeknight meal.






Steak and Potato Salad

1 BBQ Ready Potato Kit 
1 (6-7oz) steak (I used cross rib steak)
2 C green leaf lettuce, washed and chopped
1/2 C balsamic vinegar
3 Tbs honey
pinch of salt and black pepper
3 Tbs olive oil
chopped green onion for garnish

Preheat grill.

Prepare the potatoes according to package directions. Once cooked, remove from grill to cool slightly.

Season steak with desired seasonings (ours came pre seasoned). When potatoes have 20 minutes of cooking time remaining, grill the steak to desired doneness. I like Medium-Well so I cooked my steak for 5 minutes on the first side, and for 8-10 minutes on the second side. Remove from grill and let rest 10 minutes.

Place 1 C of lettuce onto a serving platter. Once steak has rested, thinly slice against the grain and place in a large bowl. Add in c Creamer potatoes, slicing larger ones in half. Add 1 C of chopped green lettuce, to the steak and potatoes. Toss with 1/2 of the dressing. Place dressed greens, potatoes and steak onto the lettuce on the platter and drizzle with remaining dressing. Sprinkle with green onion and serve.

Dressing: in a small skillet, bring the balsamic vinegar and honey to a boil. Simmer until reduced by half. Remove from heat and whisk in 3 Tbs olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle over salad.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
