Steak and Potato Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

I think this is the first time I have ever had or made blue cheese dressing. It really transformed the salad, which was delicious anyway and added an extra dimension of flavour with it's creamy sharp tangyness.

Steak and Potato Blue Cheese Dressing
(Serves 4)

500g new potatoes, halved
2-3 tbsp oil
salt and pepper
For the dressing
6 tbsp mayonnaise
6 tbsp buttermilk
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
100g blue cheese, chopped/crumbled
vegetable oil, for greasing the pan
3 sirloin steaks

Shredded lettuce

Preheat the oven to 200C. Grease a large baking sheet or line with greaseproof paper first and lightly grease. 
Add the potatoes and drizzle with the oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Toss the potatoes in the oil and seasoning. Bake for about 30 mins.

In a medium bowl whisk the mayo, buttermilk, garlic and vinegar together. Stir in the blue cheese and season. Pop into the fridge.
Lightly oil a large frying pan and set over a high heat. Season the steak.
When the pan is smoking hot add the steak. Cook to your liking. Remove to a cutting board and cover with foil. Let it sit for 5-10 mins before slicing.
Divide the lettuce among 4 plates followed by the potatoes. Slice the steak thinly against the grain and put on top. Drizzle with the blue cheese dressing and serve.
