Ingredients

FOR THE CROUTONS—

FOR THE VINAIGRETTE—

FOR THE SALAD—

If making the salad ahead, keep all the components separate until right before serving so they don't get soggy.

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Season bread slices with salt and pepper, and grill, uncovered, 1–2 minutes per side. Off heat, rub both sides of bread with garlic cloves. Cut bread into cubes to form croutons.

Purée vinaigrette ingredients in a mini food processor.

Toss arugula, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, olives, capers, croutons, and vinaigrette in a large bowl. Serve salad on sliced Crescent Steak, garnished with crumbled blue cheese.

Grill slices of bread on both sides until toasted. Watch carefully to avoid burning the bread.
