This is a great salad – perfect for when you need a little grounding but want to keep it light. The seasoning on the steak really brought amazing flavor to the salad.
I found this recipe in Cooking Light, June 2003. The recipe suggested serving with thick slices of garlic bread and ice cold beer. We opted for a good pugliese and a red blend.
One thing about this recipe – if it’s corn season, don’t use canned corn! I grilled two ears of corn instead. You really can’t beat that flavor! The only other change I made was not vertically slicing the onion. (I’m loving my mandolin slicer right now).
Excellent salad. Bon Appetit!
