Instructions

For the steaks:
  1. 1
    Heat the grill to medium high (about 375°F to 425°F). Meanwhile, rub the steaks on all sides with the oil, generously season with salt and pepper, and let come to room temperature while the grill is heating.
  2. 2
    Grill the steaks uncovered for 5 minutes per side for medium. Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into large dice and set aside.

For the salad:

  1. 1
    Heat the oven to 350°F. In a medium mixing bowl, toss the potatoes with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and bake until the potatoes are knife tender, about 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.
  2. 2
    Place the reserved steak, bell pepper, parsley, celery leaves, and scallions in a large, nonreactive mixing bowl. Halve the baked potatoes and add to the bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper as needed.

Beverage pairing: Castello di Farnetella, Chianti Colli Senesi, Italy. A fun dish to pair, since the acidity of the tomatoes and vinegar makes a big, rich red—a classic pairing for steak—impossible. Instead, the verve and bright herbal and tart cherry flavors of this traditionally made Sangiovese are perfect.
