    Using purple and green basil makes such a pretty presentation. I'll use red and yellow tomatoes next time to add even more color. I look forward to making good use of my basil and farmer's market tomatoes with this one!

    Sooo good! I've never cooked hanger steak, but I followed the directions (used a meat thermometer to get it to 135 degrees) and it came out perfectly. The dressing was awesome. The one thing we changed was instead of using all basil leaves for the salad, we used salad mix and put some basil on top. It's going on The List!

    My husband loves this! I think it's because he doesn't have to fire up the grill.We think the salad is really spicy-I followed the recipe exactly. The colors are beautiful. The recipe inspires me to grow some different types of basil in pots on the deck or walk to the nearby Farmer's Market for heirloom tomatoes. What a great light dinner on a summer evening. It would be great for a late lunch with a bottle of fine wine and some crusty bread.

    Very good! Putting this on the frequent rotation of summer "musts" while the tomatoes and basil are in full supply.
