Beef & Mango Spinach Salad

For the second week in a row, I properly executed another “let’s see what’s in our fridge” dinner. I guess I’m on a roll after last week’s quinoa recipe, because this week’s salad was fantastic. We started with sirloin steak tips that I had previously marinated and skewered for a family party on the roof and I was glad that I had thought to freeze a portion of them for later consumption. Last night we reaped the rewards, all I had to do was defrost them and fire up the grill. The sun made a rare appearance late this afternoon, so David and I enjoyed a nice dinner on the roof with a cocktail (or two). I hope this inspires you to find a healthy and fun salad in your own fridge (and freezer).

  • 8 cups Spinach, rinsed and dried
  • 1/2 English Cucumber, shaved thin on a mandolin
