This is a great dish to make with a leftover grilled steak; just take it out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature while you prepare the salad. Slice the meat just before serving. Pair with a light red wine like a Pinot Noir or a Beaujolais for a festive late-summer supper.


12 ounces
steak, ribeye
2 1/2 tablespoons
olive oil (divided)
3/4 teaspoon
salt, coarse (divided)
1/2 teaspoon
black pepper, freshly ground
1 tablespoon
lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1 teaspoon
4 cups
greens, mixed
nectarine (pitted and sliced)
scallion (slivered)
2 ounces
cheese, blue (crumbled)


Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. 

Coat the steak with ½ tablespoon of the olive oil, then sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper. Place the steak on the grill or hot pan and don't move it for at least 2 minutes. Grill steak 3 minutes total on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat; let stand 8 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.

While steak rests, combine lemon juice, honey, remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large bowl, stirring with  a whisk. Add mixed greens and toss to coat. Add nectarines and scallions. Arrange the sliced steak on top of the dressed greens and sprinkle with blue cheese. Serve immediately.
