Saturday night, I made a dish that was one of my favorite things my mom made when I was growing up. It is called Linguine and Grilled Beef Salad and it has a great spicy taste. If you can’t handle too much spice, don’t put as much ground hot red pepper in it. The dish is served on a bed of iceberg lettuce, which cools its down a bit. Get ready for some deliciousness!
