fresh spinach, rinsed and dried

Great salad! It's also a great way to use up leftover grilled steak. I used a combination of spinach leaves and mixed greens. I toasted the walnuts and instead of tomato I added thin sliced red onion. I topped the whole thing off with crumbled feta cheese which goes great with the dried cranberries. I drizzled the whole salad with "Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing" by Jan W. from this site - a great combination of sweet and tart.
Use another kind of steak! The salad mix was good, but something like grilled flank would taste sooo much better. Round steak (I marinated for 24 hours) was still tough. Like others, I used a raspberry vinegarette for dressing. I agree blue, gorgonzola or even feta would finish this salad. I'll make it again with a different cut of meat.
This is a great salad...just missing the crumbled blue cheese on top, the red onion and "Ken's" raspberry vinagerette dressing! Try this and you've got yourself the best salad in the U.S.!! Beware though....it's addictive!!
Very good. I used it to serve 6 as an appetizer on New Year's Eve and it was very well received. I left out the tomatoes, though, as I didn't think they would go well with cranberries.
This salad is great and very filling with hot parker house rolls on the side. I left out the tomato per the previous review and added thinly sliced red onion and dressed it with Paul Newman's Balsamic Vinagrette dressing. VERY tasty...thank you for sharing this recipe.
This is VERY, VERY good. It is easy to make and I have made it many times for parties and holiday events. I season the steak with a seasoning salt as it cooks. I also add 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese and I use halved cherry tomatoes instead of sliced tomatoes. I use the following for the dressing (can be found on this site): "Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette". I highly recommend this salad to everyone!
Great salad, but next time I make it I will use a different cut of beef. Round steak is too tough for this. I even marinated mine first and it was still not quite tender enough.
This is an outstanding summer dinner entree! I used leftover fillets from the grill, toasted walnuts, homemade black cherry viniagrette and tossed gorgonzola crumbles on it. DELICIOUS. Thanks Rena.
