Zesty Steak Salad Recipe

Zesty Steak Salad Recipe

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
