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

  1. Season steak with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add steak; cook 5-7 minutes on each side until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak into bite-size strips; toss with lime juice.
  2. On a platter, combine romaine, strawberries and onion; top with steak. Sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Serve with vinaigrette. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
If you’re looking to trim calories, leave off the walnuts and blue cheese; they’re adding almost 40 calories per serving.

"I do not usually care for fruit in my salad, but this one is delicious! I have also substituted feta cheese for the blue cheese, and it is equally as tasty."
