    Skirt steak salad with arugula and blue cheese

    Love this dish because it reminded me that steak doesn’t have to be a heavy, overly indulgent meal, especially when paired with pretty cherry tomatoes, spicy arugula and a bright vinaigrette. And blue cheese, because to quote one of my favorite commercials of all time, "Is it healthy? Of cause it is; it's a salad, isn't it?"

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 10 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


    • 1 pound skirt steak, trimmed of excess fat if necessary, halved crosswise, at room temperature
    • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 pint (2 cups) cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1/2 cup (about 4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
    • 1/2 pound baby arugula
    • Vinaigrette
    • 3 tablespoons minced chives, 2 thinly sliced scallions or 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion, for garnish

    Steakhouse Mustard Vinaigrette

    • 1 tablespoon coarse Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon coarse Dijon mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon honey
    • 1/3 cup olive oil


    1. Pat steak dry and season on both sides 1/2 teaspoon salt and many grinds of black pepper.
    2. In a cast-iron skillet: Heat skillet on medium-high to high and add olive oil. When oil begins to shimmer, place steak in skillet and do not move it for 5 minutes. Turn it once, and cook for another 3 minutes for medium-rare. You may need to cook your steak halves separately, depending on the size of your pan.
    3. On a grill: Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over hot charcoal or high heat for gas. Oil grill rack, then grill steak, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, 4 to 6 minutes total for medium-rare.
    4. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest, loosely covered with foil, for five minutes. Arrange arugula on a large platter. Thinly slice steak on the diagonal, across the grain. Arrange over arugula, then toss halved cherry tomatoes and blue cheese over platter. Add vinaigrette to taste, then sprinkle with chives, scallions or red onion. Serve with additional vinaigrette on the side.
