It’s not often I crave a salad, but every once-in-a-while the crunch of crispy fresh lettuce calls my name. But if I’m going to have a salad, I want it to be a whopper of a salad. Nothing wimpy with mediocre dressing and sad veggies. We are talking lots of crunch, a simple homemade dressing and a big ‘ole piece of juicy steak. Now that’s a salad that can be a meal!
I know when the title said slow cooker salad you probably either scratched your head or rolled your eyes. But seriously! Put the steak in the slow cooker before the day gets started and come home to perfectly cooked meat that you can put atop your crispy salad fixing.
This is actually one of the juiciest most flavorful ways to make a steak. I like using a skirt steak here because it turns out fall-apart-tender. I like to make it in my casserole slow cooker just because of the way it fits perfectly, but you could also fold it over and add it to a regular slow cooker as well.
Now, of course, no salad is complete without dressing and I can’t recommend enough that you should make it yourself. It’s so simple to do in just minutes and tastes so very good.
