Porter House Black & Blue Salad
I love me some salad. Chef, Cobb, Caesar, House, Black & Blue, Just Salad Point Blank Period. I LOVE SALAD. My only exception is NO RANCH PLEASE. Anything but that, ewww! Anywho whenever we go out to various restaurants I always get a salad. But when there is one that leaves a lasting impression I try to recreate it at home. So today I have for you one of my faves that was recreated from O’ Charley’s Black & Blue Salad. I mean you have your fresh veggies, crumbled blue cheese and a medium done grilled ribeye steak. How can you go wrong? You have to try this one. It is Sooo Good!
1 8 oz Grilled Ribeye Steak (Medium Done), sliced
1 large bunch leafy green lettuce (about 8 ounces)
1/2 cucumber, peeled & sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles, for garnish
1 cup of croutons
Blue Cheese Jam Jar Dressing, recipe follows
Blue Cheese Jam Jar Dressing:
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Wash all veggies well (make sure you dry the lettuce when finished). Peel and slice 1/2 of a cucumber, set aside. Next roughly chop the lettuce. Add all veggies to a large bowl.
Now add the buttermilk, sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, chives, garlic, blue cheese , salt and pepper to taste to a 2 cup mason jar. Cover with the lid and shake until well combined.
Drizzle about 1/2 cup (or more) Blue Cheese Jam Jar Dressing onto veggies . Toss well with tongs.
Top salad with blue cheese crumbles, croutons and sliced Ribeye steak. Serve with the extra dressing on the side.
