Yum! This is to serve for a lighter meal. Apple is the star flavor in this delicious steak salad recipe. Applesauce makes the dressing packed with flavor. And grilling apples brings out even more of their sweetness. Combined with the sweet, crunchy candied walnuts, there are many different textures making this one delightful salad. The Test Kitchen
