Kosher Recipes: Steak and Greek Salads [VIDEO]
It was only after I got married that I realized fruit salad and yogurt do not a dinner make — at least not for Hubby. Now, I happen to love a really good salad, but Hubby doesn’t really take to those single-girl-I-use-my-oven-for-storage-recipes from my repertoire.
So I came up with the perfect compromise: a salad that eats like a meal. Sorry you’ve actually got to turn on that oven and your stove, but it’s worth it. My Southwestern Steak Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing is guaranteed to warm you up and fill you up at the same time. It’s great for dinner when you want to go light on the carbs at the end of the day. If you don’t want to use steak, you can substitute chicken, tofu, or even grilled fish. And hey, it’s still in essence a salad, so you get all the major health benefits too.
Once you try this fab Steak Salad, you’ll be looking for more quick and easy salad recipes.
These dishes will satisfy everybody, even the man of the house. Don’t you just love when we all get along?
Creamy, tangy feta, salty olives, crisp lettuce, and crunchy croutons, all wrapped up in a light and spicy lemon oregano dressing… ah, the Greek Salad! Could be a meal, could also be a side – perfect for a any feast. Greek salad is my post-baby go to. I have a friend who gorges on Godiva after she has a baby – it’s her “Thank you, G-d, and I deserve a treat” snack. Mine is Greek Salad. When my friend Anita comes to visit and asks what she can bring, I always say – “Can you pick up a Greek Salad on the way?” So random, but hey, it’s true.
And my all time favorite salad for any occasion is this California Avocado Salad, watch me make it with Hubby and Rabbi Lawrence, we had such a blast.

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oregano and olive oil and set aside. In a large bowl, combine croutons, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, feta, olives and capers and mix well. Toss with dressing and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper and let sit 20 minutes before serving.
