Marinated Steak Salad

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 45m

Serves 4


  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup walnut oil
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless steaks, 1-inch thick (about 7 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 Belgian endives, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound escarole, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 4 ounces Roquefort cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup)


In a small nonreactive saucepan, combine the shallot, rosemary, salt and pepper. Stir in the vinegar and mustard. Whisk in the walnut oil and vegetable oil. Arrange the steaks on a nonreactive baking sheet, pour 1/4 cup of the dressing on top and turn to coat. Let marinate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toast the walnuts for about 3 minutes,

or until fragrant.

Preheat the broiler. Warm the remaining dressing over low heat; keep warm. Broil the steaks for about 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest for 2 minutes.

Toss the endives, escarole, Roquefort and walnuts with the dressing and mound on 4 plates. Cut each steak diagonally across the grain into 5 slices and arrange on the salads.
