Greek Steak Salad
with creamy yogurt dressing

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
An herb and garlic marinade gives the steak for this salad great flavor whether you're cooking it on the grill or indoors.
Smarts: This salad contains raw onions. If you prefer your onions to have less bite, you can soak them in some vinegar for 10 minutes and then drain and rinse before using. Alternatively, just omit them.

Make

  1. Remove steak from marinade (discard marinade) and season with some salt and pepper.
  2. If cooking on a grill: Heat grill to 500F / 260C degrees with one part over direct heat and one part over indirect heat.
  3. {grill}: When grill is hot, brush grates with some oil. Transfer steak to grill over direct heat. Sear steak for ~4 minutes on each side with the cover closed. Move steak to indirect heat and cook until it reaches desired level of doneness. Medium-rare: 130F / 54C degrees (~3 minutes); Medium: 140F / 60C degrees (~6 minutes); Well-done: 160F / 71C degrees (~10 minutes).
  4. If cooking on the stovetop: Place a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Brush with some cooking oil. Add steak to hot pan. Sear steak for ~4 minutes on each side. Lower heat to medium, cover with a lid or foil, and cook until it reaches desired level of doneness. Medium-rare: 130F / 54C degrees (~3 minutes); Medium: 140F / 60C degrees (~5 minutes); Well-done: 160F / 71C degrees (~7 minutes).
  5. Transfer steak to a cutting board. Let rest, covered with foil, for 5 minutes.
  6. While steak rests, drizzle olive oil (portion for salad) over kale. Add a pinch of salt. Use your hands to rub the olive oil into the kale leaves for about a minute. (This is called “massaging” the kale and will make it more tender.)
  7. Cut steak into slices or cubes.
  8. Toss kale with bell peppers, onions, cucumbers, cheese, and olives. Top with steak. Add dressing until dressed to your liking. Enjoy!
