Jack and I love steakhouses and their chopped salads. So, I tried to copy Ruth Chris and this is my version. Pretty close to Ms. Chris if I do say so myself.

    This is a great salad to add or not add whatever you like. Re: the juice of 1 lemon.. be careful here, some lemons are jucier than others. I live in AZ and have my own tree.. so they are EXTREMELY juicy!
