Steak Summer Toss

Servings 4 Serves


  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice divided
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 thick-cut beef rib eye steaks
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 avocados pitted and diced
  • 12 cherry tomatoes halved


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate steaks overnight or for at least 5 hours (see recipe).
  • Prepare marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, olive oil, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, garlic, and tomato paste.
  • Season steaks with salt and pepper and place them in a large zipper-topped plastic bag; pour marinade on top. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
  • Preheat outdoor grill to MEDIUM-HIGH. Remove steaks from marinade, discarding marinade and bag. Grill steaks for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until desired level of doneness is achieved; transfer steaks to a cutting board and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place diced avocado and halved cherry tomatoes in a large bowl; add remaining 2 tablespoons of lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Slice steaks into bite-sized cubes and add to avocado/tomato mixture; toss well and serve.
