Moist marinated steak, wild rice, almonds and veggies blend together nicely in this colorful main-dish salad. Years ago, a friend gave me the idea for this recipe, and with some tweaking, it's become a favorite of ours.

My family loves a good steak dinner, but with busy schedules, I'm often thinking about ways to put new and simple twists on things. This salad is flavored with the freshness of lemon and cilantro and is one of my husband's favorite weeknight dishes. —Lyndsay Wells, Ladysmith, British Columbia
During the summer, my family often requests this recipe—especially our 19-year-old (we also have a 15-year-old and a 14-year-old). Simply add garlic bread for a great meal. It's wonderful, too, for a picnic or any gathering. —Lori Thon, Basin, Wyoming
Looking for a new twist on an old picnic classic? This colorful potato salad has both sweet and Yukon Gold potatoes, fresh greens, some Cajun heat and a cool yogurt dressing. —Nancee Melin, Tucson, Arizona
With plenty of sliced steak and veggies, this main dish salad will please even the biggest appetites. It's a terrific dinner on hot summer days or any time you feel like grilling. —Mildred Sherrer, Roanoke, Texas
