Made this almost as given but with broiled & sliced strips of chicken thighs instead of the steak, & it was wonderfully delicious! Quick way to do up the meat without heating up the house on a warm day! Loved the salad this way! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
This was a wonderful meal on a warm summer evening. The salad is light and refreshing yet filling from the steak. I am a big fan of feta, tomatoes, onions and vinagrettes so this was perfect for me/us.
