A 3-ounce serving of the best steak possible is the centerpiece of this large salad. Cook the steak on an indoor, two-sided contact electric grill.
About 1 pound New York strip steak, about 1 inch thick
6 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped
4 radishes, sliced
2/3 cup slivered red onion
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
2 ribs celery, sliced
2 cups steamed and chilled broccoli florets
Heat grill to high. Rub a New York strip steak with crushed black pepper. Grill steak to desired doneness—about five minutes for rare (internal temperature of about 130 degrees) to eight minutes for well-done (160 degrees). Let steak rest before slicing.
Arrange vegetables on four dinner plates. Spray lightly with olive oil and vinegar or use a light bottled vinaigrette dressing. Slice steak on a diagonal, trimming any fat. Divide equally among salad plates. Top with herbed horseradish cream sauce and serve.
