I seem to always post my steak pictures... Well here is another one. It was a warm night here, one day last week, and I wanted a "summery" steak dinner. TE and I broiled 2- 8oz NY Strip steaks and I ate half of one (4oz) with a side of roasted corn salad and gazpacho (both recipes are originally from weight watchers).
Here are the recipes as I made them:
Corn Salad- Serves 2, 115cal/serving
1Tbsp olive oil
2 sliced green onions (white and light green parts)
1c quartered grape tomatoes
1c Trader Joes frozen fire-roasted corn
Salt and Pepper to taste
1Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
Heat oil in pan and cook green onions (3min).
Add frozen corn and cook until it is heated (5min?)
Add tomatoes and cook for ~3min
Once the dish is done cooking remove from heat and add vinegar.
Mix well and let the pan sit for 3-5min
Serve on top of greens.
*Gazpacho- serves 6, 45cal/serving
1 large can of stewed plum tomatoes, chopped (with juice)
1/2 of 1 "English" (seedless) cucumber chopped with skin
1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
4 Scallions (green part) sliced
Basil, torn (1/2 of a storebought package)
2c Vegetable juice
1 jalapeno seeded and minced
3 gloves of garlic
juice of 1 lime
2Tbsp red-wine vinegar
Mince/puree jalapeno with lime juice, garlic, and vinegar.
Add the puree to the other ingredients and marinate overnight in the fridge.
Serve cold with a garnish of lime.
*This has not been totally successful yet. The basil overpowered the soup and TE thought it tasted like salsa. I will be adding more vegetable juice and cucumber to the soup and pureeing the entire thing. I will be sure to update with the verdict.
