My favorite steak sandwich involves blue cheese and fresh arugula. When I came across this recipe for an Italian steak and bread salad, I was intrigued because it takes the sandwich ingredients and turns them into a hearty dinner salad.
The resulting dish has all the familiar flavors of a gourmet steak sandwich, but requires a fork to eat. The recipe is highly adaptable, so feel free to use chicken, goat cheese, or mushrooms in place of the steak, blue cheese, and tomatoes. For the method, read more.
