Arugula with Steak, Lemon and Parmesan

Arugula with Steak, Lemon and Parmesan

Lunch

This is one of our favorite salads. We love the flavor combinations of the spicy arugula, the clean citrus, and the grilled flavor of the meat – not to mention the Parmesan! It’s important to buy hormone and antibiotic-free meat, and since there are so few ingredients, make sure that your olive oil and balsamic are of especially good quality so the flavors will be well-developed. This is probably best served at home for lunch, but it can also be sent in a lunchbox as long as the greens aren’t dressed ahead of time – send the dressing on the side.

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • dash salt
  • dash pepper
  • 3/4 lb rump or sirloin steak
  • 1/2 lb arugula
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shaved

1. To make the dressing, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Set aside.
2. Grill the beef tips to medium rare, let cool 10 minutes. Slice thinly.
3. Toss arugula with dressing and add beef and shaved Parmesan.
