Leftover Steak Makes A Delicious Salad
Noodles are delicious hearty additions to stir-fry and soups. But chilling and adding them to salads makes a nice alternative to the standard lettuce on those warm spring and summer evenings.
Cold noodle salads are often found in Asian themed restaurants as delicious lunch and dinner options. They're often a nice alternative to the more standard lettuce salad and are hearty enough to be quite filling. However, I have never had a cold noodle salad because I prefer my noodles hot either by themselves, in soups or stir-fry.
But the other night I had some leftover steak and I wanted to do something besides make my usual steak sandwich. So, I thought about all those times I'd seen cold noodle salad on the menu and decided it was time to put my aversions aside and try it. I'm so glad I did. Even though the noodles were ice cold, the dressing with which I tossed them made them super flavorful and gave me a great base on which to put my leftover flank steak. I don't know why I waited so long to try the cold noodle salad, but now that I see how easy and delicious it is, I'm going to make it a lot more often.
