CommonGround volunteer Anita Keys shared her recipe for Roast Beef Salad Spread with Pure Nebraska viewers.

Roast Beef Salad Spread


  • 2 cups ground roast beef*
  • a 3 lb. roast makes ~ 4 c. of meat
  • ½ cup dressing I use Miracle Whip
  • 1 tablespoon pickle relish
  • Bread crackers, pita bread, or veggies for serving


  • Grind up leftover, fully cooked and cooled roast beef. I use a blender, but you can use a food processor, meat grinder, or dice it with a knife.
  • In a bowl, combine dressing and pickle relish with ground up roast beef. You can add more salad dressing, a tablespoon at a time, if you want the spread less dense.
  • Serve as a sandwich filling,a dip with crackers, in a pita, or as a stuffing in celery or tomatoes.


*Note: a 3-lb. roast makes about 4 cups of ground roast beef
