Steak Salad with a Bloody Mary Vinaigrette

I am trying to eat more salads.  I remembered an old 1966 Weight Watchers salad dressing that my Mother used to make with a V8 base.  I have updated it to be a Bloody Mary Vinaigrette and paired it up with a Steak Salad.

For the Bloody Mary Vinaigrette, the one ingredient that we have always used are green bell pepper flakes, dried.  If you can’t find them at your grocers, Amazon has them.

To make the vinaigrette, add all the ingredients to a large square ziploc container.  Cover ensuring the seal is tight.  Shake thoroughly.  Let chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  I make it the night before serving.  When ready to serve, take the container from the refrigerator.  Shake to mix thoroughly.  Remove the cover.  Pour into a salad dressing bottle using a wide funnel if needed.  Shake the salad dressing bottle (lid held down tight) before serving.

For the salad, marinate the flank steak in Burgundy or a red wine for at least 4 hours.  Grill the steak to your desired doneness. You can also cook the steak in a pan if you don’t have a grill.  Once grilled, let the steak sit for a few minutes.  Slice against the grain to use on top of the salad.

For the salad, you can use butter lettuce or mixed lettuce leaves. Sliced the cooked flank steak and set aside.  Add some sliced avocados and red onions.  Add any other toppings you desire.  Add the grilled sliced flank steak on top.  Shake the salad dressing bottle (lid held down tight).  Pour the Bloody Mary Vinaigrette over the salad.
