Grilled Steak and Potato Salad

  • Cook Time: 15
  • Total Time: 15
  • Serving: 4


2 lbs (1kg) yellow-flesh potatoes, peeled and quartered

1⁄2 cup (125 mL) thinly sliced red onion

1⁄2 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced

2 (each about 8 oz/250 g) beef strip loin steaks

3 tbsp (45 mL) canola oil, divided

1 large garlic clove, minced

1 tsp (5 mL) dried thyme

1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) salt, divided

1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) black pepper, divided

3 tbsp (45 mL) apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp (15 mL) prepared horseradish

¼ cup (60 mL) chopped fresh basil or parsley

3 cups (750 mL) lightly packed baby arugula or spinach


Place potatoes in a pot, cover with cold salted water and bring to a boil. Boil for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain well and place in a large bowl. Add onion and orange pepper.
Meanwhile, preheat barbecue grill to medium-high. Place steaks in a shallow dish and drizzle with 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil. Sprinkle with garlic, thyme and half of each of the salt and pepper. Turn to coat both sides. Grill steak, turning once, for about 5 minutes for medium-rare or to desired doneness. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand for 2 minutes, then thinly slice. Add to potato mixture.
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, horseradish and remaining oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle over potato mixture. Add basil and toss gently to combine. Spread arugula on a serving platter and spoon salad over top.
Tip: This salad can be served warm or at room temperature. The bed of arugula absorbs the flavor of the salad as it sits.
