Steak Niçoise Salad

These DELICIOUS t-bones were the star of our Nicoise-inspired, classic French Salad. Typically served with tuna, the steak version is served with just a few extra twists.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

For the Salad
2 large T-Bones (Marinate in soy sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce and Montreal steak spice)
1 head romaine lettuce
2 large beefsteak tomatoes
1/3 cup red onion
2 tbsp capers
3/4 cup of olives – Nicoise and Kalamata
Small bag of baby potatoes
1/2 bag of frozen hericots verts (green beans)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp seasoning salt
1 tsp Herbes de Provence seasoning
4 eggs boiled and peeled
1/3 to 1/2 cup blue cheese (crumbled)

You’ll need to learn to multi-task for this one!

  • Marinate steaks for a couple of hours and bring up to room temperature prior to grilling
