Sometimes simplicity is best, and this is one of those times! I made this a while back and it's one of those old recipes that can't be improved upon, it's excellent. I made as posted with reduced fat sour cream - thanks for posting, MamaJ, I love it!
This was excellent. Unfortunately, my meat is "aging" and it was a tough roast (cooked it waaaay too long), so next time, I will use a "young" roast that's not overdone. I followed the recipe precisely as written, and will do so again. I think a roast will be totally dedicated to this salad, and not just a way to use left over meat. Thanks
MamaJ, this is delicious!! I used for sandwiches. Just love using leftovers for a meal and this will go into my collection. I used sour cream with chives and omitted the red onion. And b/c DH does not like horseradish I used mustard instead. Thanks MamaJ for sharing. Made for ZWT4.
I made this with leftover pot roast and it was so good that I would actually make a roast just to make this salad-very good on crackers.
I made this up at about noon yesterday and served it up for a lunch/snack break today for the 3 guys putting a new motor in our truck. I gave them toasted bread 1/2's to spread it on and a fresh pot of hot coffee. There was nothing left when they went back to work. I mean that I almost didn't have to wash the dish! I swear that somebody wiped the dish with a finger. I whizzed it up in the food processor and it really was done in 5 mins. I didn't have red onion but none of them complained that it was white. I think I'll make roasts next summer just to be able to make this up. Mine looked exactly like the photo by Mika G. Thanks MamaJ.
Every Friday night we have "snack night" instead of dinner. This week we had Roast Beef salad with cheese and crackers and we all loved it! It is such a nice change from the regular roast beef spread with pickle relish and mayo. The combination of beef and horseradish is always a winner. I used the food processor to chop the meat and we used green onions instead of red. Thanks for the great recipe. We will be having this again!
I knew Dave would love this with the combination of beef and horseradish. Sure enough we both did. Served on some crackers for an early snack today. It had not marinated the full 24 hours but it was very good anyway. I made this with left over roast beef from Kansas Girl's French Dip Sandwiches. Thanks for sharing.
I LOVE beef and horseradish together, so I LOVED this salad! It's really "zippy." I used leftover grilled top sirloin for the beef. Great use for leftover beef. Thanx for sharing your Mom's recipe; it's yummy!
