    Quick, lite, and generally healthy yet satisfying for the meat lover. This recipe is a variation on a basic steak salad with a delicious dressing and additional spices. Great southwest flavor always gets high marks from guests.

      This is very good. I decided to make it a chopped salad, chopped everything small, much tastier that way.

      This was pretty good. The salad and steak were very good, however we didn't care for the dressing. My entire family thought that the dressing was way too salty and hot. Next time, I think that I would use either garlic powder or fresh garlic instead of the garlic salt. I would then use table salt to taste. Also, I think I would leave out the cayenne pepper entirely and maybe add some salsa to give it some spice and heat. Overall, the salad had a very good flavor, and with some tweaking, it would be something I would serve regularly. Thank you for sharing.
