Steak and Potato Salad - Get your steak and potatoes all in one with this delicious and hearty side dish! You can even serve it as a tasty entree!Summer's not over yet! In fact, I love cooking out in September and even heading in to October, when the weather is still nice and it is actually more comfortable with lower temperatures and less humidity. This steak and potato salad is kind of half comfort food and half picnic fare, so it is a perfect dish to bring to a fall cookout.
It is also a great side dish to serve at a football party for everyone to munch on while you watch your favorite team win. 🙂 Your guests get to have their meat and potatoes all rolled into one delicious salad!
To make this super-easy to prepare, you can use pre-cooked steak strips, but it will be tastiest if you use your leftover steak or cook a steak specifically for this dish. I recommend Certified Angus Beef® Brand for best results! I also used the small red potatoes (love them!) and kept the skin on, which contributes additional texture and color, and nutrition as well (lots of vitamin C!).
We actually used this salad as our entree for dinner one night and had a nice green salad to go along with it. It was quick and easy, yet hearty and filling. I will be making this for the family again, for sure!

- When the potatoes have cooled, cut them into chunks and place in a large bowl.
- Cut the steak strips into bite-sized chunks if needed and add to the bowl with the potatoes.
