ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tips)
  • 3 tablespoons fruity vinegar, such as raspberry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3 tablespoons walnut oil or canola oil
  • 1 pound sirloin steak or strip steak (1 to 1 1/4 inches thick), trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Tips: To toast chopped nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
  • To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

directions

Preheat the grill to medium.

Pulse 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup walnuts, vinegar, shallot, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor to form a chunky paste. With the motor running, add the oil until incorporated. Transfer the dressing to a large bowl.

Sprinkle the steak with the pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Oil the grill rack (see Tips). Grill the steak about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, 6 minutes per side for medium. Let rest on a clean cutting board for 5 minutes.

Add the spinach to the bowl with the dressing; toss to coat. Divide the spinach among 4 plates. Thinly slice the steak crosswise. Top the spinach with the steak, feta and the remaining blueberries and walnuts.
