"I received the recipe for this cool pasta salad from longtime friends," explains Brenda Novak of New Holland, Pennsylvania. "A pleasant dressing complements the meats, veggies and cheese, making this colorful combination popular any time of year."
Meet the Cook: Served with fresh bread, this makes a nice light meal. I've also used this recipe for entertaining, and it has always been a success at potluck dinners.
While it's a delicious way to use up leftover beef, I sometimes serve it with cold ham and cheese instead.

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.
