Ingredients

  1. 12-oz 3⁄4-in.-thick sirloin steak
  2. 1⁄2 a 1-lb loaf French bread, split
  3. Garlic-flavor cooking spray
  4. 1⁄2 tsp salt
  5. 1⁄2 tsp pepper
  6. 2 cups ripe tomato chunks
  7. 2 bags (6 oz each) baby spinach trio (baby spinach, arugula and carrots), or 2 bags (6 oz each) baby spinach
  8. 1⁄2 cup sliced onion
  9. 1⁄2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  10. 1⁄2 cup olive oil & vinegar dressing

Directions

  1. Heat outdoor grill or stovetop ridged grill pan. Coat steak and cut surfaces of bread with garlic spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Grill steak, turning once, 6 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted from side to middle registers 155°F. Remove to a cutting board, cover loosely with foil and let rest. (Temperature of steak will continue to rise to 160°F for medium doneness.)
  3. Meanwhile, grill bread, cut sides down, 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
  4. Cut bread in chunks; thinly slice steak. Combine in a bowl with remaining ingredients; toss to mix.
