Method

  1. Season the steak with lots of pepper and a little salt. Cook on the barbecue or under the grill for 2-3 mins each side for medium-rare, or to your liking. Let sit for 10 mins, then cut into slices.

  2. For the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the zest, juice, oil, tarragon, shallot, cheese and some salt and pepper.

  3. Cook the beans in boiling water until just tender. Drain and rinse under cold water, then drain thoroughly.

  4. Divide the chicory leaves between two plates and top with the beans, walnuts and steak slices. Pour the dressing over the salad just before eating.

Flavour combination was very nice. Dressing didn't seem to come together into a vinaigrette, so heated it with some mushrooms and added that to the salad - it worked well.

Nice, but maybe needed more cheese. I think me and mine struggle wih low fat options...

sounds great for 35º Spain. Shall be trying this on Friday evening. I feel a little honey would be required in the dressing to give a little sweetness but I'll let you know.
