Snow Peas and Beef Salad
"In this delicious main-dish salad, savory strips of broiled streak are lightly dressed along the water chestnuts, mushrooms and onions, then tossed with crisp snow peas," details Janeen Kilpatrick of Fairbury, Illinois. "Ketchup and ginger add a bit of zip to the sweet dressing."
