Steak Panzanella

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 cups)
Leftover steak adds substance to classic Italian bread salad. Toss vegetables with vinaigrette, and let stand at room temperature to draw out flavorful juices. With bread, vegetables, and meat, this dish doesn't need any accompaniments other than a glass of wine (try pinot noir).

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound day-old ciabatta bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
  • 2 1/2 cups coarsely chopped tomato (about 1 pound)
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped English cucumber
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup julienne-cut bottled roasted red bell peppers
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups loosely packed arugula
  • 4 servings Garlic-Rubbed Flank Steak, cut into 1-inch pieces
