Deli beef, veggies and cheese make a cool and quick topper for a lettuce-based dinner salad.
Updated Jan 7, 2011

Ingredients

  • 6 oz thinly sliced cooked roast beef (from deli), cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1/4 cup sliced radishes
  • 1/2 cup diced Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup zesty Italian dressing
  • 1 small head iceberg lettuce

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, place beef, carrots, cauliflower, radishes and cheese. Add dressing; toss to coat. Let stand 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, cut lettuce into 4 wedges for lettuce "boats." Remove a few pieces of lettuce from inside boats. Place boats on 4 plates. Spoon beef mixture onto lettuce boats.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To make up to 8 hours ahead of time, prepare beef mixture as directed, but do not add cheese; cover and refrigerate. Cut lettuce into wedges; wrap with damp paper towels and plastic wrap, then refrigerate. Add cheese to beef mixture just before serving.
  • tip 2
    Any deli meat, fresh vegetable combination or salad dressing can be used to make this quick and easy salad.
  • tip 3
    Use 4 to 6 ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots for each salad instead of slicing the whole carrots.
