Steak Salad with Parmesan Vinaigrette

In my opinion, it is hard to beat a wonderful steak salad.  I wanted to create a salad that incorporated ingredients that would be found in your favorite steakhouse.  Spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes (I loved those large grilled tomatoes they serve), squash, avocado, steak and a vinaigrette.   I marinated the steak in our favorite marinade, grilled until medium rare, sliced and served on top of all of the salad ingredients.  I then drizzled the vinaigrette over the steak.  Let’s just say – steakhouse wonderful!
