I found this easy recipe many years ago, and we never grow tired of it. I like to serve this zippy salad with roasted potatoes, rolls and a mandarin orange salad. —Gail Reinford, Souderton, Pennsylvania
Caramelized onion and sirloin steak seasoned with a cinnamon rub make this main dish salad different from typical versions. It’s easy to toss together with a packaged greens, blue cheese, dried cranberries and store-bought vinaigrette.
Rather than use typical treatments for leftover steak, our home economists toss the chilled meat with romaine, sliced mushrooms and tomato for a fresh and filling salad. Blue cheese and french-fried onions make flavorful accents. To create a tangy-sweet dressing, just whisk together olive oil and a few other ingredients.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
“This salad just explodes with flavors,” writes Tiffany Martinez. And the reader from Aliso Viejo, California also likes it because it's fast. “It's easy and quick to prepare, tastes delicious, and is a healthy dinner all on one plate!”
“I invented this recipe while watching a movie set on the Greek islands. I like the combination of warm grilled steak and sauteed mushrooms with cold salad ingredients.” —Chris Wells, Lake Villa, Illinois
