Martha Mondays - Sirloin Salad with Cilantro


Welcome to Martha Mondays hosted by Brette from Martha and Me this week it was Sarah's turn from Mum in Bloom to make the challenge selection. She chose a salad which is nice with the warm weather and all. She chose Sirloin salad with Cilantro. This was a perfect dish for us #1. It has was so hot we actually turned on our air conditioning. I usually hold off as long as I can. #2. I was waiting for a dish that was not a dessert. #3. Wade has off on Sunday and Mondays so this I when we usually have steak or something else to grill. I still do the grilling and he starts the charcoal.

It was simple enough, especially for a Martha recipe. I was just confused a little on the salad part. It seamed to be just the steak, onion and cilantro.

The marinade was good and the flavors blended really well. I again didn't understand why we needed flat leaf parsley for garnish when we had cilantro as the salad? I did use a few more greens in mine. The steak was wonderful!
We did get a chance to go see the sunset too when Wade has off from work. It has been windy so the ripples show up good, even in the shoreline! Just wanted to share!!

Hope you all have a good week now!

  2. No worries, I think it looks great! Mmm...about the salad! I think I would love to add in an extra touch of bell pepper or radish or pickled beet. I wonder if the meat would goes well with some apple sauce too! What do you think?
    Glad that you enjoyed your weekend.
    Regards,

  3. 3HT, that's true, look at it as a simple salad. It's all about the steak and dressing!

    Kristy, that would sound good. I'm sure if we did the recipe on our own, we'd add those extra touches. (like we always do)

  10. Yours looks really good Lyndsey. I too was pleased that there was a project that wasn't a dessert! I added more salad to our dinner (and potato wedges). I will be making this again though, the flavours were great. And I am envious to hear that your weather is so good, when it is getting colder in London again!

  11. Your sunset photo is beautiful.

    I'm gonna serve my leftovers on red bib lettuce for supper :) It was good but definately not salad. It's so fun cooking all together with you ladies.

  13. Ann, oh yes, you have to add your favorite touch! Mmm...black pepper on it would taste good!

    Bentobird, Thanks. I have a lot of seaside photos. I can't resist every time we go out to the beach!

    Debbi, Catherine, and Gulmohar, thank you!

    Megan, Thanks! I will be sure to check out yours!

    TKW, we'll take it with us to the beach when you come, we are only 4 minutes away!

    Pru, thank you, it was a tasty steak. We usually have summer heat May through October. Mid summer we always get afternoon showers too. Now it cools enough in the evening to be pleasant. How cold is it getting in London?

    Sarah, Thank you. I can't get enough of sunset photos. It is fun to see how everyone's turns out. It's nice to get ideas too. Sometime you just have to substitute or adjust to your family.

    Fimère, Merci beaucoup!

  14. *sigh* If only I could stomach cilantro this would look fabulous. I'd have to switch out the cilantro for spinach or some time of lettuce.
