Buffalo Steak Salad Recipe

Buffalo Steak Salad Recipe

We raise buffalo on our ranch, so I cook plenty of buffalo steak as well as other cuts. During the warmer months, this cool salad is a refreshing change of pace from the heavier meals I feed my crew other times of the year. The meat is tender, and the dressing is mouthwatering.—Burt Guenin, Chappell, Nebraska
