We adapted this from a Giada De Laurentis recipe. It's simple, but incredibly delicious. Our kids powered through more than we imagined possible. No leftovers at all! The biggest change was serving the steak hot of the grill instead of chilled. That makes a huge positive difference I the warm steak contrasts wonderfully with the cool greens and cheese.

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Rub the steak with a small amount of olive oil and generously season with kosher salt freshly ground black pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the romaine lettuce, Belgian endive, red onion, baby arugula and cherry tomatoes, and half of the cheese. Toss the salad with enough vinaigrette to coat. Season the salad with salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange the salad on a platter.
  3. Grill the steaks for 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare, then slice crosswise into thin slices. Arrange the steak slices atop the salad and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Drizzle more vinaigrette over the steak slices and serve.
  4. Red Wine Vinaigrette:
  5. Mix the vinegar, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper in a blender. With the machine running, gradually blend in the oil.

    Our family absolutely loved this. The fresh steak right of the grill made a big difference. Simple but classic!

      We enjoy this salad as well. Also Agree, serving the steak hot/warm on the cold salad is a delicious contrast. Great summer dish for everyone!
