Steakhouse Salad Bites

Steakhouse Salad Bites are a Fantastic Meal Starter

Have you ever had one of those “wedge” salads at a steakhouse?  The kind where you get a quarter of a head of lettuce, blue cheese, tomatoes, and bacon?  I love those things, but sometimes I’m not in the mood for a whole one.  They’re HUGE!  So I came up with Steakhouse Salad Bites for a beautiful little salad or appetizer that has the same great flavor with a lot less volume.  My family loved them!  Compliments abounded and the tray was empty in minutes, despite having a whole meal in front of them.  I’d have to count this one as a winner for sure!

Making Steakhouse Salad Bites

Steakhouse Salad Bites are really simple to make.  I added one ingredient that the wedge salad doesn’t have, and that was steak.  I found two small fillet steaks for only $4 at the grocery.  I used one for the recipe and kept on for another time, making this pretty affordable.  For the base of the salad I used Green Giant Little Gem Lettuce.  They are tiny heads of romaine lettuce that are adorable.  I peeled apart the leaves and used them whole like a little boat.  In them I put the steak, cut into little pieces, as well as a salad of heirloom cherry tomatoes, some crispy cooked bacon, and bleu cheese crumbles.  The result was perfect.  Steakhouse Salad Bites looked elegant and tasted delicious!

Steakhouse Salad Bites for a Crowd

Steakhouse Salad Bites would be fantastic as an appetizer for a party or on a buffet.  I’d assemble them at the site, but you can make it go quickly by having all of your ingredients ready and set them up like an assembly line.  Placing them on pretty trays will provide an elegant display that will wow everyone, and they will love your little Steakhouse Salad Bites!
