Steak with tomatoes and basil

Grilling season is here and sometimes simple is best and this combination of a perfectly grilled steak with fresh basil and tomatoes can’t be beat. Especially when you use local ingredients, all of which you can find at the farmers’ market every Saturday.

While your grill is heating up prep equal parts basil and spinach and then place in a large bowl with some cut up tomatoes. Salt and pepper your steak and grill to your desired doneness and then place on a cutting board to rest for a few minutes.

Toss the salad with a couple splashes of your best extra-virgin olive oil, a generous pour of balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. After plating your steak pile the salad over the top along with any dressing that’s left in the bowl.

Oh yeah, it’s summer!
