Easy and delicious - just what I was looking for tonight for a quick supper. Instead of reduced sodium I used reduced fat cheddar cheese. I opted not to use the vinaigrette in this recipe but used "Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette" from this site as I had some already made from a previous night and that stuff is oh so good. Read More

I made this without the chipotle and vinegar (reason for the 4 stars instead of 5). Used jelapeno ranch instead. Served with garlic toast. Very good and will make again. Read More

A great salad for using up leftover flank steak. We liked the ingredients but even with the pureed chipotle chiles the dressing lacked enough flavor. Once increasing the vinegar a little that did the trick. Served this with 'Fried Cabbage' from AR. Read More

This was good!! I did add a couple things to this salad just because I had them in the fridge to use. I added radishes cucumber and some chopped charred poblano's that I had grilled along with the steaks. Used some heirloom yellow tomatoes from my garden as well. The dressing is yummy but I think I will double the dressing next time (the chipotle is a must!) it was barely enough for 2 of us. Thanks!! Read More

This was such a great salad. I have to thank one of the reviewers Jillian for mentioning that she used the Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette on the salad that is from this site. Well I did the same thing - that vinaigrette is just fabulous. I'm sure the chipotle dressing is good too. Really a great and fast dinner. Thanks for this recipe! Read More

We enjoyed this salad! It was easy to prepare using readily available ingredients. I would suggest adding more pepper and garlic to The steak ahead of time also salt. The Adobe sauce with chilies I think it s mandatory!. It totally changes the taste and I really liked it. Read More
