“This is a wonderful salad for one. Double the ingredients and make it a romantic dinner for two.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) boneless beef top sirloin steaks, 1/2 inch thick
  • 12 balsamic vinaigrette, with extra virgin olive oil dressing divided
  • 1 large red pepper, cut into 2-inch-wide strips
  • 12 lb fresh asparagus spear, cleaned (about 4 medium spears)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (5 ounce) bagtorn mixed salad greens (about 5 cups)
  • 14 cup crumbled blue cheese


  1. Place steak and 1/4 cup of the dressing in large resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat steak with dressing. Refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat. Remove steak from marinade; discard bag and marinade. Grill steak 5 to 10 minute on each side for medium doneness (160°F). Meanwhile, grill peppers and asparagus alongside the steak 5 to 7 minute or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally and brushing with the olive oil. Remove vegetables from grill; cut crosswise in half. Set aside. Remove steak from grill; cut across the grain into thin slices.
  3. Place greens in large bowl. Add peppers, asparagus and remaining 1/4 cup dressing; toss to coat. Place on serving platter. Top with the steak slices; sprinkle with cheese.
