Grilled Beef, Summer Squash and Onion Salad

Savor the flavors of the summer with this salad topped with grilled beef Strip Steak, red onions, yellow squash, zucchini and drizzled with balsamic glaze.

Ingredients

  • 2 beef Strip Steaks Boneless, cut 1 inch thick (about 8 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic-pepper seasoning, divided
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 12 wedges
  • 1 medium yellow squash, cut lengthwise in half
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half
  • 8 cups mixed salad greens

Instructions

  1. Bring vinegar to a boil in small saucepan. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes or until reduced by half. Whisk vinegar, oil, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in small bowl until blended. Set aside. 

  2. Press 1 teaspoon garlic-pepper seasoning evenly onto beef steaks.

  3. Soak two 10-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain. Thread onion wedges onto skewers. Brush onions and cut sides of squash with oil; sprinkle with remaining teaspoon garlic-pepper seasoning.

  4. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange vegetables around steaks. Grill steaks, covered, 11 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 11 to 15 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium doneness (160°F), turning occasionally. Grill squash 8 to 12 minutes (7 to 11 minutes for gas) and onions 12 to 15 minutes (13 to 16 minutes for gas) or until tender, turning occasionally.

  5. Cut squash into 3/4-inch pieces. Arrange squash and onions over greens. Carve steaks into slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Arrange over salad. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad; toss.
