This chilled beef main-dish salad gets its kick from a fresh jalapeno. To speed preparation, substitute 8 ounces lean deli roast beef for the broiled steak. Cut the sliced beef into bite-size strips and marinate in the lime-flavored dressing.

Because chili peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chili peppers, wear plastic gloves. If your bare hands touch the chili peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
