Pepper Steak Salad with Creamy Horseradish Dressing MAGIC ELIXIRS (TM)

I’m crazy about an entrée salad, and in this dish I have kicked it up a notch by adding some heat. This steak salad is a crowd pleaser for sure. Here I have coated the outside with freshly ground black pepper, but leave it off if you prefer. The Creamy Horseradish Dressing is another one of my New Whole30 MAGIC ELIXIRS and is perfect as a dressing or served on the side as a dipping sauce with vegetables. Gooey eggs, pepperoncini, and avocado take it to the next level. Plus, of course, my Marinated Onions MAGIC ELIXIRS.

This salad is absolutely delicious for lunch, dinner, and leftovers! Plus, it is Whole30!


For the Creamy Horseradish Dressing MAGIC ELIXIRSâ„¢:

  • 1 cup Whole30 compliant Mayo
  • ¼ cup grated horseradish
  • 1 tsp Whole30 compliant Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsps chives

For the Salad:

  • 1 Bone-in Ribeye Steak
  • Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
  • Baby lettuces
  • Soft boiled eggs, cut in half
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • Cucumbers, sliced
  • Hearts of palm, sliced
  • Nicoise olives
  • Radishes, sliced
  • Avocado, cut into chunks
  • Pepperoncinis, sliced
  • Marinated Red Onions MAGIC ELIXIRSâ„¢


Preheat the oven to 400F.

Make the dressing by blending all ingredients together in a food processor.

Salt the steak thoroughly. Then, using a lot of ground black pepper, thoroughly coat the steak, pressing the pepper down into the steak.

In a large oven-safe sauté pan, sear all sides of the steak. Begin by searing the top of the steak on the stovetop for 4 minutes. Then flip it over and sear the back for 4 more minutes. Using tongs to hold the steak, sear the bone side for 1 minute and then flip and sear the opposite edge for 1 minute. Lay the steak flat in the pan and place in the oven. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes. When done, remove and place on a board to rest for 10 minutes.

Assemble your salad: first place lettuce on a platter, sprinkle with salt, and drizzle with Marinated Onion oil. Add the sliced steak to the platter, then place the remaining vegetables around beautifully and serve with the Creamy Horseradish Dressing MAGIC ELIXIRSâ„¢.


Here’s a great variation for fall: Artichoke Hearts, Hearts of Palm, Avocado, Beautiful Greens, Cucumbers, Lime Ceasar Dressing

  2. I am not finding how to make the marinated onions!

  3. Gonna make this tonight to kick off a healthier eating week! I’d love to hear your egg trick. Those look perfect and I like them warm too. I found your W30 prep ideas inspiring! Thanks. Juliet Ruhl insta: @Everything _Onion

    1. Keep watching on the stories, but it involves boiling for 8 minutes, peeling quickly and not putting into cold water!

  4. Thank you so much. This was delicious, as was the chicken piccata recipe you have that I made last night. I’m so grateful to have come across your website (thanks to @glutenhatesme on IG).

    1. That makes me so happy

    1. I adore this recipe

  5. Looks so delicious. One question, though: in the video, it looks like the oil is smoking when the beef is searing–is that ok? (I thought it’s bad when olive oil reaches its smoke point.)

  6. Wow! I read this recipe and immediately got off the couch and made the dressing. Tomorrow the whole thing! I can’t even imagine the rest – I loved the dressing!!!!!!!!

  7. Do you use fresh horseradish or prepared horseradish?

  8. Where can I buy the red cutting board?

    1. It’s been in the family for a very long time. A great cutting board is a great addition to any kitchen.

  9. Looks delicious! Can I grill the steak vs using the oven?

  10. Delicious dressing! Thanks for sharing
