I am quite certain you will love this wonderful summer salad. It can be made with thinly sliced flank steak (which is my preference) or deli roast beef slices. The best thing about this salad – after the taste – is that you can make this salad ahead of time, just leave out the spinach and add it to the salad and gently toss when you’re ready to serve.
