Makes: 4 servings

  • Coarse salt and pepper
  • 1 small shallot, grated or minced
  • 2 large cloves garlic, grated or minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced, plus 2 tsp. zest
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 sprig oregano, finely chopped, or 1 tsp. dried oregano, lightly crushed
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup EVOO, plus more for drizzling
  • 12 - 15 pitted kalamata olives, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds flat-iron, flank or sirloin steak (about 1 inch thick), at room temperature
  • 2 sprig rosemary, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 cubanelle frying pepper or small green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 5 cups leafy romaine tops, arugula or spinach
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 cup feta crumbles
  • Sliced light green pepperoncini (green pickled peppers), for garnishing
  1. In a saucepan, combine the potato and enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, salt the water and cook until firm-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.
  2. In a bowl, combine the shallot, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, vinegar, mustard, oregano and crushed red pepper. Whisk in about 1/3 cup EVOO to combine. Stir in the olives.
  3. Preheat a grill pan or griddle over medium-high heat. Drizzle the meat with EVOO and rub all over; season with the rosemary, salt and pepper. Add to the pan and cook, turning once, for about 8 minutes for medium-rare. Let the meat rest for a few minutes, then slice on an angle.
  4. Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet, heat the remaining EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the potato cubes, season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the potatoes and add the onion and frying (or bell) pepper; cook for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; reserve the skillet. Add the romaine (or arugula or spinach), tomatoes and parsley to the hash.
  5. Meanwhile, add the dressing to the reserved skillet and heat for a minute. Pour over the salad and toss to coat. To serve, arrange the salad on plates; top with the feta, steak and pepperoncini.
