Cook Time15 mins

 2 lbs yellow-flesh potatoes, peeled and quartered 1 kg
 1⁄2 cup thinly sliced red onion 125 mL
 1⁄2 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
 2 beef strip loin steaks (each about 8 oz/250 g)
 3 tbsp canola oil, divided 45 mL
 1 large garlic clove, minced
 1 tsp dried thyme 5 mL
 1⁄2 tsp salt, divided 2 mL
 1⁄2 tsp black pepper, divided 2 mL
 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar 45 mL
 1 tbsp prepared horseradish 15 mL
 ¼ cup chopped fresh basil or parsley 60 mL
 3 cups lightly packed baby arugula or spinach 750 mL

1

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.

2

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.

3

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.
