  1. 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  2. 1/4 cup olive oil

  3. 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  4. 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt

  6. 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

  7. 1 beef flat iron steak or top sirloin steak (3/4 pound)

  8. 1 package (9 ounces) ready-to-serve salad greens

  11. 1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and thinly sliced

Method A quick and easy recipe to prepare this week:

  1. For dressing, whisk together first six ingredients. Place steak and 1/4 cup dressing in a resealable plastic bag; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Reserve remaining dressing; cover and refrigerate until serving.

  2. Drain beef, discarding marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 160°), 6-8 minutes per side. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

  3. To serve, divide salad greens among four plates. Top with steak, tomatoes, radishes and avocado; if desired sprinkle with cheese and pepper. Serve with reserved dressing.
