Copy Cat

I love being a copy cat…when it comes to food.  One of my favorite things to do is eat something yummy at a restaurant and try to recreate it at home.


This steak salad was inspired by one that we have tried many times at Greens and Grille, a local salad and sandwich shop.  Their signature salad that we love is called the “Steak House” and includes many of the same ingredients as our homemade version.

The original:
  • Mixed greens, candied almonds, sliced egg, cranberries, grilled onions, bleu cheese with aged sherry thyme dressing served with flank steak

L&M remake:
  • Romaine lettuce, pecans, dried bing cherries, caramelized onions, feta cheese, carrots with homemade balsamic vinaigrette and grilled skirt steak

Ours was just as delicious, and we didn’t have to leave our house!  Yummy, healthy and easy, a true salad celebration!


Mix all ingredients and top with dressing.  Serve with a side of crusty bread if desired.


-Take home a to-go menu from your favorite restaurant for copy cat inspiration.  Many times they have the ingredients listed that are included in the dish.
-You can also go your favorite restaurant’s website to find the same information, as well as nutritional info.
