Beef Up That Salad and Have Yourself a Delicious Low-Carb Dinner!

Salad on its own may not particularly thrill those seeking a more traditional meat and potato type meal. This is why I sided this salad with a delicious beef tenderloin steak. Cooked in red wine, with lemon and a few simple spices, this beef recipe is the perfect compliment to beef up this salad. Did you think that is mashed potato sitting in front of that beef? No, that wouldn’t be low-carb, it’s horseradish cream! Talk about zinging it up a notch.

Horseradish is great for your immune system, especially in the fight against upper respiratory illnesses and urinary tract infections. It also helps our bodies protect itself from many cancers. That’s a good enough reason to add it it into our diets, but watch out for that zing, it can really sneak up on you!

A few basic ingredients, makes fabulous flavor!
