I actually crave this dressing! I did add one major thing to the recipe. I made a second batch of the dressing (minus the blue cheese) and used it as a marinade for the meat. I marinated the steak for a couple hours and it really gave it some extra kick. Will make again and again. Read More

I love bleu cheese dressing but I think mixing it with the vinegar was a bad idea. The rest of the salad was an excellent combo but I really wish I would have followed in my husband's footsteps and ate the salad with the store-bought dressing rather than what the recipe called for. Read More

Hubby out of town tonite--what to do for dinner? Using the ingredient search I typed in what I had on hand to work with quickly--leftover grilled steak lettuce blue cheese green pepper and tomatoes. This came up and it was perfect--and didn't break the calorie bank! I made a few minor changes just to suit my own taste preferences including adding some crumbled bacon and excluding the green olives not that they wouldn't have been good. I also had some homemade Italian vinaigrette on hand so didn't need to bother with this dressing which was probably just as well since the Worcestershire in it didn't really appeal to me. All and all no matter what little individual spins you put on this a great idea and just a delicious simple dinner made perfect with the glass of red wine I had to accompany it. Read More

This a great recipe for those nights when you feel like a salad but don't want to feel hungry minutes after you are done. I made this using my leftover steak from the night before and it worked great. Read More

Fabulous salad - plus it's a great way to use up leftover grilled steak! And while the vinaigrette was nice and light I opted to leave out the Worcestershire sauce and instead added just a bit of dijon mustard. I dressed up the greens with a bit of crumbled bacon and subbed some roasted red pepper for the green pepper. I love the addition of the olives which gave it that nice little salty surprise. Very easy to put together and great with a side of garlic bread! Read More

This is a great salad that is great as a main dish! We don't like bell peppers or olives so I left them out and added 1 lb. of blanched asparagus. I also used a ribeye steak. I will make this often!! The dressing is yummy! Read More

I have to agree with other reviewers...the dressing for this steak salad is incredible! I will be whipping up extra and keeping it on hand for salad chicken or pork marinade veggies etc. Read More

This made a fantastic luncheon entree for my ladies group. In fact its very similar to a steak salad that we get at our favorite restaurant....only we don't have to drive 30 miles to get one now! To make it taste more like the version used by our fav restaurant I made the viniagrette with garlic flavored olive oil and added a splash of white balsamic vinegar.Thanks so much for posting this wonderful salad Linda. We always wondered what was in the dressing. Read More

TASTY! I was in a time-crunch to get dinner on after work so I got 1# sliced brisket take-out and used this in place of the steak. I also substituted garlic-herb Feta cheese for the blue cheese because it's what I had on hand. Other than those 2 things I made exactly as stated. We were skeptical of all the ingredients but they were GREAT together! Wouldn't change a thing... except my husband prefers black olives! We might change that next time or use both! Thanks for the post! Read More
