"Caveman Deli" Roast Beef Salad

"Caveman Deli" Roast Beef Salad

This is my way to get the flavor of deli-style roast beef sandwiches without the bread.

Take 1 celery stock or some other crunchy, dice-able vegetable, or maybe even fruit or nuts. and dice up into 1/4" bits.

Take 1 sandwich worth of roast beef (about 3 oz. depending on appetite), and chop up or pull apart into small shreds.

Mix the celery (or the like) and roast beef together with a generous glob of whatever condiment or dressing you would use on the sandwich. Use enough to get a consistency similar to tuna salad. I use supermarket mayonnaise-horseradish sauce -- the horseradish adds a great spark to it! (For purists, the Neanderthin book contains a recipe for mayonnaise.) Take this mixture and plop it on a bed of salad greens, or mix it into them (or, idea from Patti: Roll up in a big lettuce leaf and eat it like a burrito).
