Ingredients

Salad:

4 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges

1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet onion

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Steak:

1 pound boneless rib-eye steak, about 1 inch thick, trimmed of fat and cut into 4 portions

1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. To prepare salad: Combine tomatoes, onion, oil and vinegar in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. To prepare steak: Rub steak with oil. Season on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill the steak 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Allow the steak to rest 5 minutes; serve with the salad on the side and a dollop of chimichurri sauce on top.
  4. Meat-Buying Tips: Make sure that packaged meat isn't past its sell-by date and that there's not much moisture in the packaging.Touch it if possible - it should be firm and not soft. Look for bright red (not gray) meat. Vacuum-packed meat will be darker looking and should turn red as soon as it's exposed to air.
