Sicilian Lemon White

Mediterranean Salad

  • 2 (6" long) day-old French rolls, cut into 1" square cubes
  • 7 tablespoons Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chipped fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarse grind black pepper
  • 4 cups fresh spinach leaves, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 (6 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 4 boneless strip steaks (1" thick)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350F.  Spread bread cubes in single layer on a rimmed cookie sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and crisped, about 12-15 minutes.  Set aside to cool. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 6 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper until evenly blended.  Add spinach, artichoke hearts, onion, olives and bread cubes. Toss gently.  Divide salad evenly on 4 serving plates. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add steaks and cook for 5 minutes. Do not move steaks during that time (so that a crust will form on bottom of steaks).  Using tongs, turn steaks over. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 5 minutes more. Cut each steak crosswise into thin strips. Place evenly atop salad on plates.  Drizzle with any remaining pan juices.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
