olive oil for brushing
fresh basil leaves
fresh thyme leaves
1/2small red onionvery thinly sliced
salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

6Tbspextra virgin olive oil
Brush the steak lightly will olive oil and season with salt on both sides. Preheat a stove top grill pan until really hot, then grill the steak for about 2 minutes per side, or until done to your liking. The exact time will depend on the heat of your grill pan and the thickness of your steak. Let rest under foil while you prep the tomatoes.
Cut the tomatoes in chunks, or small wedges. If you have cherry tomatoes, cut them in half.
Thinly slice the steak on the bias.
Arrange the tomatoes, steak, onions, and herbs in one large salad bowl, or in individual bowls. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Whisk together the vinaigrette and drizzle over the salad just before serving.
Some fresh steamed corn scraped off the cob would be a wonderful addition.
If you're the type that just has to put cheese on everything, try some chunky shavings of Parm, or maybe even a few little balls of fresh mozzarella.
