There's something to satisfy everyone in this beefy bowl! Since I started dating a lineman I have never cooked more meat, hidden more vegetables in dishes, or stretched the truth about all the ingredients. When we met, his favorite entrée was a #3 from McDonald's. I have not been inside a McDonald's since the 90s and then only to use the bathroom on the way to a baseball game. So, with that being said, this Strawberry-Blue Cheese Steak Salad is lineman (and Chelsea) approved!
