Salads are one of the quickest dishes to prepare for a party, but with the right combination of ingredients, it can easily become the dinner’s tastiest meal. A steak salad offers both satisfaction and convenience in its preparation and flavorful result. In this recipe, we give you a steak salad that serves just enough seasoned meat with the sweetness of stewed apple. And to cap it off, we added a horseradish dressing made creamier with the help of Nestlé All Purpose Cream to create that balance to this meal.
The addition of the horseradish dressing, with its savory, and sour flavors uniquely contrast and balance each other out in just one dish. You can also easily prepare this salad with a few tenderloin pieces in your freezer and any produce that’s still in your refrigerator. The dish also makes for a quick, filling, and flavorful meal that you can prepare as a solo dish or for serving to a small group during more intimate dinners.
