  • Cost Per Serving:$3.35


  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes (about 16)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 12 ounces skirt steak
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 4 cups watercress, coarse stems removed, packed
  • 2 radishes, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese


1. Put potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water by 2 inches. Stir in 1 tsp. salt. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, chives, mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and garlic.

3. Preheat a grill to high. Pat steak dry and season with pepper and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt. Oil grill grates. Grill steak, turning once, about 6 minutes total for medium. Transfer steak to a cutting board, cover loosely with foil, and let rest 10 minutes. Slice steak against the grain.

4. Arrange watercress, radishes, potatoes and steak on 4 serving plates. Drizzle salads with dressing, crumble blue cheese on top and serve.
