My Go To: Steak Salad

This is my go to meal. If I am not in the mood to really cook. I make a huge salad. (Romaine, Carrots, Cucumbers, Onions, Tomatoes, and Peppers) I then make some homemade french fries. I used my new toy, the mandolin. I got the mandolin for mothers day. It is so awesome.
Anyway, I cut them thin and put them in a pot with oil @ 350 degrees. They only need to be in there about 4 minutes or until golden brown. Then I salt and pepper them right away. Meanwhile, I have a London broil or flank steak on the grill with salt and pepper. When the steak is ready I let it sit for 10 minutes. I then cut it against the grain.
I put the salad down on a plate then top it with lots of Cheddar cheese, then I put french fries on top of the cheese, and finally the steak. This lets the cheese melt a little....SO YUMMY.
I have to admit, this is one of my favorite meals. I love salad....I really love salad with french fries on it...You maybe thinking, did she lose her mind? My husband made funny of me too. Until he tried it. Now, he loves it. I am from a small town in OH outside of Pittsburgh. In Pittsburgh they put french fries everywhere...on salad, sandwiches and so on...It is so yummy. Try it...You maybe amazed. It adds an extra crunch!!!! It is so good.
