I thought this was great. We have been eating steak salads for a long time and the dressing is the only thing so far that actually tastes good with all the other flavors. I did make some changes to it though. First I omitted the walnuts and mushrooms my wife will not eat them I also added onion we love onion and then to the dressing I added 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley 2 large cloves of garlic and best of all about a half teaspoon of crushed red pepper it made the dressing like a light chimchurri it was delicious.

I guess I have different taste from most people. The salad ingredients are really great. I just recommend having a back-up bottle of dressing just in case your family doesn't care for the one here. We really scrimped on a small bottle of blue cheese to make it go around. I like all of the ingredients in the dressing; it's just not something we could eat mixed together. Try dipping some lettuce in the mixture first before risking the whole salad. I'm sure I must have a little pickiness though. It was something different to try. Read More

WOW Rebecca! Great salad for a hot summer night or any other night for that matter. My family loved this! I grilled the steak and cut into 1/2"X1" strips. This made for a pretty presentation. I used approx 1 cup of red leaf lettuce for more color and toasted the walnuts for a more flavor. The dressing was amazing and added extra culinary excitement with the smokey piquant flavor.I served homemade guacamole on the side which my family said really enhanced the great flavors of this salad.Thanks for sharing.This is our new favorite summertime meal.

Nice quick meal. My husband & I both thought the dressing had to much of a vinegar taste so will cut back on the red wine vinegar a touch. Read More

This was very easy to make but it wasn't anything special. Eveyone in the family had the same feeling. The dressing was flavorful but again nothing to rave over. Just ok and I probably wouldn't make it again. Read More

So yummy easy and filling! I used a leftover NY strip from the night before. I didn't measure anything just sprinkled it on to my liking. I made the dressing in a bottle and plan to use more of it tonight on a salad with chicken. I really liked the dressing just don't douse it on. I love the way this recipe looks and if you have leftover steak it can be made in less than five minutes. I will definitely have this again. Read More

Used leftover grilled ribeye for the meat. Loved all the ingredients -- colors were pretty. Used regular bagged spring mix. I don't like liquid smoke so I didn't make the dressing -- topped with a champagne dressing. Tasted fine. Read More

This salad is excellent. I added guacamole on top and increased the broil time a little for the steak but besides that didn't change a thing. I will definately make again. Read More
