Black and Bleu Salad

A hearty and flavorful meal from the Atkins Diet.

20 carbs/serving
Yield: Serves 4


  • 2 heads of butterhead lettuce
  • 6 oz. cold leftover steak, thinly sliced
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 6 oz. Bleu cheese

  2. Crumble half the bleu cheese into the mixture (reserving the other half for a garnish) and stir a few times
  3. Add a drizzle of the vinegar if it is too thick
  4. Chill for at least two hours (The longer it chills, the more intense the flavor becomes.)
  5. Slice the butterhead lettuce in wedges and place on four salad plates
  6. Pour the bleu cheese dressing over the lettuce
  7. Arrange strips of the cold steak and four cherry tomato halves over the lettuce
  8. Sprinkle the reserved bleu cheese on top
