Steak and Egg Salad

I made this salad for dinner a couple days ago, my plan was to make a meal that would help clear the refrigerator before we left town for a few days.  Sometimes my favorite salads are made just that way; one of the best salads I can remember was made finishing up all the bits left in the refrig after spending a week at a condo in Florida.  This time I had a really nice left over grilled strip steak, any grilled steak would work nicely, flank steak would be a leaner, healthier option than most beef steaks.  I really like to toss an extra steak on the grill so that I’ll have some left over for a salad a day or two later.  If you don’t want to fuss with making your own salad dressing, an Italian dressing works well and you can have dinner ready in no time.  I try to have a few hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator; they make a great grab and go breakfast to take to work.
