  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 (5 oz) pkgs spring mix (mixed greens)
  • 1 ½ lb striploin (New York strip) steak
  • 2 whole grain buns or rolls
  • black pepper
  • crushed red pepper
  • Dijon mustard
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • honey
  • salt


  1. Wash and dry the fresh produce. (Skip the mixed greens if they came pre-washed.)
    • 1 small pkg chives
    • 1 lemon
    • 1 pint grape tomatoes
    • 4 sticks celery
    • 2 (5 oz) pkgs spring mix (mixed greens)
  2. Peel and mince garlic. Trim and chop chives into small pieces.
    • 4 cloves garlic
  3. Place half of the garlic and half of the chives in a small bowl (reserving the rest for the next step); add oil, salt, and crushed red pepper. Stir to combine the garlic-chive oil and set aside.
    • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    • ⅛ tsp salt
    • ⅛ tsp crushed red pepper
  4. Juice lemon into a large bowl. Add remaining garlic and chives, oil, Dijon, honey, salt, and pepper to the bowl; whisk to combine the dressing and set aside.
    • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
    • 1 tsp honey
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp black pepper
  5. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. While the skillet heats up, pat the steak dry with paper towels and place on a plate. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
    • 1 ½ lb striploin (New York strip) steak
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ½ tsp black pepper
  7. Once the skillet is hot, add oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Add steak to the skillet and cook until desired doneness, 2-5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean plate and let rest, about 5 minutes.
    • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  8. Meanwhile, preheat oven to broil on high; position the rack in the upper third of the oven.
  9. Halve tomatoes. Trim and thinly slice celery crosswise; add both to the bowl with the dressing.
  10. Add mixed greens and blue cheese to the bowl and toss to combine the salad. Set aside.
    • 1 (4 oz) pkg crumbled blue cheese
  11. Slice rolls in half and place on a baking sheet pan, cut-side up; drizzle with the garlic-chive oil. Place in the oven and toast until golden, 1-2 minutes. Remove from the oven and cut each round in half.
    • 2 whole grain buns or rolls
  12. Thinly slice steak against the grain.
  13. To serve, divide salad, steak, and crostini between plates or bowls. Enjoy!
