I LOVE Greek food. From a traditional lamb gyro with tzatziki and red onion to creamy avgolemeno soup with chicken and lemon, the flavors are always big, comforting and impossible to resist. Now don’t get me wrong, these dishes are perfect exactly how they are. But I wanted to take a classic Mediterranean-inspired dish and incorporate some new ingredients, while still maintaining traditional flavors and textures. So I decided to make a Skirt Steak Salad with Arugula, Bulgur and Tzatziki.
The base of this salad is bulgur, a type of dried cracked wheat, which provides great texture and whole grain nutrients. The cream tzatziki sauce, peppery arugula and crisp Persian cucumbers also add freshness to this bright salad. And while the pickled red onions are not traditionally on a Greek salad, they add intense acidity and crunch. Finally, the seared skirt steak completes this salad into the perfect dish for any meal.
