Pastrami and Greens

Pastrami cures the ills of the  world.  Give it to the enemy and he will convert to your side.  Recently, I have made a few dishes with pastrami and they became instantaneous successes.  I have a feeling, no matter what was with the pastrami, had no significance other than to showcase the meat.

This is the kind of recipe, you can add other items to.  Celery would give it a crunch.  Pasta would turn it into a meal.  The pastrami will  be the star, no matter what one adds.

Pastrami and Greens


1/2 pound sliced pastrami (sliced pieces into about 1/2 inch pieces)
1 bag romaine lettuce
2 carrots (shredded)
1 small red onion, sliced thin


1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon

1/4 cup hot sauce
1/8 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder


In a large bowl. place romaine, carrots, celery and green onions.
In a small vessel, combine all of the dressing ingredients.
Pour dressing over greens and pastrami to coat.
Eat and enjoy.
