Blistered Grape Tomatoes Over Steak and Blue Cheese Salad

0 73

If you are looking for a simple, yet very tasty dish to serve up for late lunch (or dinner) romantic rendezvous, this steak salad will do the trick. Served on a bed of baby arugula with nuts, add the deliciously sweet taste of blistered grape tomatoes that pairs so well with a creamy, high-end blue cheese. Yum!

The steak is marinated for one – two hours in a homemade chimichurri dressing. Just before getting ready to grill the steak, start preparing the salad base. Toss together baby arugula, 2 tablespoons of a light dressing (Olive oil, mustard, lemon or vinegar whisked together), salt and pepper to taste, and a handful of coarsely chopped walnuts. I used a 1/8 cup of curry cashews which were delicious. Place mixed greens on a serving platter. Grill the streak to medium rare, place over the salad and add blistered grape tomatoes and crumbled blue cheese. Serve with your favorite wine or a glass of champagne.  Love is in the air…..
