Thia Beef Salad for a crowd

This recipie is what I make when I need to feed a lot of people, its easy and quick to do and tastes great.  The secret is in the roasted rice, and the dressing. The amount of steak you use depends upon how many people you are feeding, but the salad ingredients make enough for about 6 people.

Always taste the dressing to see that it is balanced, it should taste a little salty and sour, but not too much.
