I love a good London broil. It is one of my favorite meals to cook because it is simple and something most of my friends and family like. For years I struggled with the question of how to use the leftovers because I always have leftovers. I’ve tried everything from cold cuts to stir fry before stumbling upon my summer favorite. Two summers ago I met a friend for lunch at a local bistro and noticed the day’s special, a black and blue salad. The black and blue salad was essentially a steak salad with blue cheese. It was fabulous. I got home that night, opened the refrigerator and noticed the leftover London broil. At that moment my version of the black=n=blue salad was born. This is so simple and so tasty it is perfect for a hot summer night and it solves the leftover quandary.
