    • 450g new potatoes
    • 450g sirloin steak
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 450g salad greens
    • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Place potatoes into a pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to the boil and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes. Drain and cover to keep warm.
    2. Preheat the oven grill or a barbecue. Season both sides of steak with salt and pepper. Cook steaks for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.
    3. Meanwhile, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, and tarragon for dressing; season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. Divide salad, tomatoes and shallots onto 4 plates. Cut warm, unpeeled potatoes into quarters; slice steak into thick strips. Top the salad with steak and potatoes; drizzle over dressing. Serve warm.

    We tried this last night. WOW! The flavors were GREAT together! I did make more dressing though - we like a lot and as written is enough for one person. I boiled the new potatoes with a Zatarain's crab/shrimp boiling bag to add a little extra zip - they turned out very tasty! My husband also wanted to add red onion so we did that as well. We will make this again - probably every other week or so. We loved it! I would recommend it to others!  -  14 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a good, different salad. You do need to know that the dressing is good, but as written it's enough for one serving, not four. At least if you want to taste it! So other than making more dressing, I made this as written and we enjoyed it very much.  -  06 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    When I told my husband that I was making this for dinner he rolled his eyes in disgust. Boy was he wrong! We both loved it...so full of flavor. I am going to make it again next week for company. Frank, you are a genius!!!!!  -  12 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
