READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MizEmerilLagasse

This is the best salad in the world, and I feel so strongly that way that I would better money on that. I've made allot of salads in my day, but NONE have come even slightly close to this one.

I was craving a good steak salad, one that was similar to a salad at Panera in the fall. Found this one and gave it a try.....Followed to a "T". Used Blue Cheese and Porterhouse (get it on sale, can be pricey). PERFECTION. It was so good. It was exactly what I was looking for. I am making it again tonight - deserved a review! Delish.
