Everything is better with beef fry, especially when it’s candied and tossed into a spectacular salad… Just saying!


  • 2 6-oz (170-g) pkgs sliced beef fry
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp Simply Gourmet Chili Lime Rub (optional but recommended)
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 8–10-oz (225–280-g) bag spring lettuce (or lettuce of choice)
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced into 1-inch (2½-cm) matchsticks
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 15-oz (425-g) can sliced hearts of palm
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
  • ½ Tbsp honey
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp dried parsley flakes
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Preheat grill or oven to 400°F (200°C).

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Lay slices of beef fry onto baking sheet.

In a small bowl, combine honey, Chili Lime Rub, and liquid smoke. Brush top and bottom of each slice of beef fry with mixture.

Grill or oven-bake beef fry for 8–10 minutes. Remove from grill/oven and allow to cool. Break into strips.

Combine all dressing ingredients. Place lettuce and vegetables into a salad bowl. Add dressing and beef fry strips and toss. (Alternatively, plate lettuce and vegetables. Top with beef fry and drizzle dressing.)
