from "The Silver Palate Cookbook" by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins

This salad originated as a way to utilize leftover London Broil, but soon evolved into a salad so special that we found ourselves making extra London Broil so that we could have Marinated Beef Salad. It is a cool solution to the problem of finding salads to please your carnivores. The following recipe is only a suggestion; feel free to improvise with any ingredients you have on hand.

In testing this recipe we marinated a boneless 2-pound sirloin about 2 inches thick in 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup red wine vinegar and 1/4 cup soy sauce for 3 hours before draining it, patting it dry, and pan-frying it over the highest possible heat for about 10 minutes on a side.

4 portions

3 large boiling potatoes
3 to 4 cups cooked beefsteak (preferably medium-rare), cut into thick julienne
2/3 cup diced sweet pepper, half green and half red
1/3 cup chopped purple onion
1 scallion (green onion), thinly sliced
2/3 cup Garlic Dressing (Recipe Follows)
1/3 cup chopped Italian parsley
Lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
Grated rind of 1 orange (garnish)

Garlic Dressing
1 egg yolk
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup best-quality olive oil

1.Peel the potatoes. Using a melon-baller, scoop the potatoes into small balls; you should have about 2 cups.
2.Transfer potatoes to a pan of salted cold water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook until balls are tender but not mushy. Drain.
3.Combine potatoes, beef, green and red peppers, onion and scallion in a mixing bowl.
4.Pour on the garlic dressing and toss thoroughly. Add parsley and toss again.
5.Arrange salad on lettuce leaves and garnish with orange rind. Serve immediately. Or refrigerate, covered. Let salad return to room temperature before serving.
Garlic Dressing (About 1 1/2 cups)
1.Combine egg yolk, vinegar, sugar, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process briefly.
2.With the motor running, slowly dribble in the olive oil.
3.Taste, correct seasoning if necessary, and transfer to storage container.
