I've always wanted to try a Beef Salad, never had one, never made one, what's it like? The first thing I thought of after tasting the dressing on the cucumbers was, I bet this would taste great with beef! I had a sirloin steak in the fridge that I broiled and cut on the bias. After that it was just a matter of building the salad with all the fresh veggies I love. It was light and refreshing and so good! I found the original recipe on Epicurious and tweaked it to my liking. I started with:
1 cup of sour cream
1 tbls of apple cider vinegar
sugar to taste
salt and pepper to taste
With this base recipe you can add whatever you want. Make this a day ahead and keep in the fridge, it gets better the next day. Next time I'm thinkin a little bit of garlic would be nice .....This is great as a veggie dip as well!
