Steak and Potato Salad with Mustard Dressing

Steak and Potato Salad with Mustard Dressing ~ Living the Savory LifeSo it seems that Sunday Gravy was my 50th post!  Who knew?!  And it only took me two plus years to get there.  So hooray for an LSL milestone!  Let’s hope the 100th isn’t another two years away.  I’m glad my 50th was Sunday Gravy.  I really like that recipe but don’t worry #51 isn’t a bad one either.  (really great transition there Laur; really great)  Anyway……Steak and Potato Salad with Mustard Dressing ~ Living the Savory Life

I’ll be up front right now; I have a lot of side dishes coming your way! Normally, my protein is the star and hogs all the glory but lately, I’ve been making my side dishes the star and the main protein has taken the back seat a bit. It’s nice to change things up a bit!

I’ll give you a few hints…. You’ll see some beets and some cauliflower, maybe some cucumbers and even some broccoli stems in LSL posts in the near future. I know, you’re intrigued by the broccoli stems aren’t you? Why should the florets get all the attention?? The stems are wonderful!
