This is great when you're in a pinch. Next time I will marinate the steak, and then pan-sear it, so it can get some color (mine looked kinda greyish). Thank you Barb.

We thoroughly enjoyed this salad. I used tenderizer on the steak before cooking, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. My DH wants to marinate the steak in the dressing, next time then grill it out. My son thinks this salad would be good as a wrap, (stuffed in a tortilla.) As you can tell - we all enjoyed it and want to have it again.
