Recipe by COOKGIRl
My husband loves steak and he prepares this salad often in the summer when produce is plentiful. The success of this recipe depends on the quality and freshness of the ingredients. The meat can also be cooked on the stove top if you wish. We like to serve this with corn on the cob on the side!
