Steak Salad with Creamy Horseradish Dressing

When my husband and I started eating healthy, we LIVED by the cookbook, Fresh Food Fast by Cooking Light. It was our healthy eating bible. Why? Because it was healthy recipes that had either 5 ingredients or less – OR took 25 minutes or less to prepare. It was a working parent’s dream 🙂

Tonight, we pulled out an old favorite from that cookbook… the Steak Salad with Creamy Horseradish Dressing. Check out that yummy picture. The recipe is below.

  • 2 (6-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed (about 3/4 to 1 inch thick)

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (6.5-ounce) package sweet butter lettuce blend $
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved $
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced English cucumber $
  • Creamy Horseradish Dressing


  1. Prepare grill.
  1. Sprinkle steaks evenly with salt and pepper. Place steaks on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
