I thought this was great. We have been eating steak salads for a long time and the dressing is the only thing so far that actually tastes good with all the other flavors. I did make some changes to it though. First I omitted the walnuts and mushrooms, my wife will not eat them, I also added onion, we love onion, and then to the dressing I added, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, 2 large cloves of garlic and best of all about a half teaspoon of crushed red pepper, it made the dressing like a light chimchurri it was delicious. Enjoy

I guess I have different taste from most people. The salad ingredients are really great. I just recommend having a back-up bottle of dressing, just in case your family doesn't care for the one here. We really scrimped on a small bottle of blue cheese to make it go around. I like all of the ingredients in the dressing; it's just not something we could eat mixed together. Try dipping some lettuce in the mixture, first, before risking the whole salad. I'm sure I must have a little pickiness, though. It was something different to try.

WOW, Rebecca! Great salad for a hot summer night, or any other night for that matter. My family loved this! I grilled the steak and cut into 1/2"X1" strips. This made for a pretty presentation. I used approx 1 cup of red leaf lettuce for more color, and toasted the walnuts for a more flavor. The dressing was amazing and added extra culinary excitement with the smokey, piquant flavor.I served homemade guacamole on the side, which my family said really enhanced the great flavors of this salad.Thanks for sharing.This is our new favorite summertime meal.

Fabulous salad, it was a delicious and filling main course meal! I added some chopped purple onion to the salad, and I substituted extra virgin olive oil for the vegetable oil.

Nice quick meal. My husband & I both thought the dressing had to much of a vinegar taste, so will cut back on the red wine vinegar a touch.

This was very easy to make, but it wasn't anything special. Eveyone in the family had the same feeling. The dressing was flavorful, but again nothing to rave over. Just ok, and I probably wouldn't make it again.

So yummy, easy, and filling! I used a leftover NY strip from the night before. I didn't measure anything, just sprinkled it on to my liking. I made the dressing in a bottle and plan to use more of it tonight on a salad with chicken. I really liked the dressing, just don't douse it on. I love the way this recipe looks and if you have leftover steak, it can be made in less than five minutes. I will definitely have this again.

Used leftover grilled ribeye for the meat. Loved all the ingredients -- colors were pretty. Used regular bagged spring mix. I don't like liquid smoke so I didn't make the dressing -- topped with a champagne dressing. Tasted fine.
