Cool cucumber and avocado combine with spicy marinated steak to create a fun and tasty balance of flavors your guests will love. If the spice is too much, remove the cayenne and red pepper flakes from the avocado mixture.—Ning Watson of San Diego, California
This sirloin gets its fresh taste from tomato, red onion and avocado. Steak sauce gives the light dressing its delicious difference. To complete the meal, serve soft breadsticks and lemon sherbet.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

This hearty salad always satisfies my hungry family. For a change of pace, substitute pork loin or poultry for the steak. Southwestern-style dressing or a sour cream-avocado-cheese mix can also be substituted for the salsa as the topping.—Leah Carrell, Quitman, Texas
