"This hearty luncheon salad is a great way to use up leftover steak," says Amanda Prestigiacomo of Seabrook, Texas. Pepper strips give the chilled medley color while store-bought Italian dressing makes assembly a breeze.
"After working all week, my husband and I like to spend a lot of time with our two kids on weekends," says Linda Emily Dow of Princeton Junction, New Jersey. "That's when this recipe comes in handy. We marinate the meat in the fridge overnight, then grill it quickly for a fast, filling meal."
At lunch with a friend one day, she told me about a steak salad she'd had at a party. It sounded so fantastic, I had to try it for myself. My family would eat it nonstop if we could. Can't seem to get enough of that twangy dressing! —Alma Winberry, Great Falls, Montana
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
Sliced beef and tasty onions top this simple spinach salad. The dressing is thick, hearty and tangy, and is just the thing to bring it all together. Plus, you can put it on the table in no time! Linda Eggers - Albany, California
