Grilled Steak and Potato Salad

Grilled Steak and Potato Salad Recipe
James Baigrie
I make this salad when I'm craving the taste of a grilled steak but trying to cut calories. I love the flavor and crispiness of roasted potatoes, but since the grill is already fired up, you can simply brush the potatoes with olive oil, season, and grill about 3 to 4 minutes per side, if you prefer.

Prep: 40 Minutes
Cook: 35 Minutes
Stand: 5 Minutes


1 (14- to 16-ounce) strip steak, cut 1 1/2 inches thick
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 fresh rosemary sprigs (about 2 tablespoons), divided
1/2 pound red new potatoes (about 8 small potatoes), cut in half
Sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 red bell pepper, cored and seeded
1 red onion, sliced into 1-inch-thick rounds
1 (5-ounce) bag mixed baby greens, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


1. Preheat oven to 400°. Coat steak on both sides with 1 tablespoon olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Rub 1 teaspoon pepper and half of rosemary onto both sides; let stand about 30 minutes.

2. Toss potato with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and rosemary, and add sea salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

3. Grill bell pepper and onion, uncovered, over medium-high heat, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Season steak on both sides with sea salt. Grill steak, uncovered, over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove from hottest part of grill, and cook, covered, another 4 to 5 minutes or until temperature registers 130° for medium rare. Remove steak from grill; cover loosely with foil, and let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. (Meat will continue to cook.)

4. Slice steak into 1/2-inch slices, and toss with potato, grilled vegetables, baby greens, cilantro, and Mustard Vinaigrette. Divide evenly onto plates. Serve warm.
