Applebee’s Southwestern Steak Salad with Chimichurri Sauce

This delicious Southwestern Steak Salad at Applebee’s is easy to put together, but you have to make the Chimichurri sauce and the homemade Cilantro Ranch Dressing first. You’ll get both recipes here. Serves 1

Chimichurri Sauce Recipe


1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 small or 1 red chili, deseeded and finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to release all of the flavors into the oil before using. Ideally, let it sit for more than 2 hours, if time allows.

Cilantro Ranch Dressing Recipe


1 packet traditional Hidden Valley ranch
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttermilk
2 tomatillos, remove husk and dice
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 clove garlic
1 lime, juiced
1 jalapeño, remove seeds (optional)


Blend all ingredients until smooth.

Salad Ingredients:

6 oz sirloin
1/2 cup corn and black bean salsa
2 tablespoons chimichurri sauce
2 cups mixed greens
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese blend
1 cup tortilla strips
Homemade Cilantro Ranch Dressing to garnish


Grill your steak to desired temperature. Let stand 1 minute, then cut into slices. On a serving plate add your greens, then your corn and black bean salsa, top with slices of steak, cheese and tortilla strips. Drizzle on dressing. Yum Yum!
