I lived in Pittsburgh for 5 years and never would have thought I'd ever see French fries in a salad. You will probably only see this recipe in Pittsburgh restaurants which makes it special and unique! It's very delicious. Add your favorite dressing.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Spread French fries onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake French fries in the preheated oven until slightly browned, about 15 minutes.

  • While the fries bake, cook steaks on preheated grill until beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, 6 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Remove steaks to a cutting board.

  • Mix romaine lettuce, cucumber, and egg together in a salad bowl. Pile French fries atop the salad mixture.

  • Cut steaks into bite-size pieces and arrange atop the French fries. Sprinkle croutons and mozzarella cheese over the entire salad.

Tips

Cook's Notes:

Tuna steaks or chicken can be used in lieu of steak.

I already know how delicious this is because I live in Pittsburgh and this is pretty much exactly how we always eat out steak/chicken salads (minus the croutons which I omitted b/c hubby doesn't care for them). If you've never had a steak or chicken salad with fries on it you are definitely missing out and you MUST try it...SOOOOO GOOD! We use either Italian or ranch (sometimes both) for dressing YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

We live about an hour south of Pittsburgh and most restaurants in our area serve this. Sometimes they use flank steak or London broil cut in thin strips and also add carrots and diced onion. Just make sure to keep the fries and steak warm so the cheese melts when you spread it on top. I like Sweet and Sour salad dressing on mine, but the hubs likes any type of Italian. Thanks for posting the recipe!!! Read More
