Fall is a time for change - the wind picks up, the leaves start to fall from the trees, and we all crave something hearty and warm for dinner. There's nothing better than a plate of seared steak topped with arugula, parsley, lemon juice, and olive oil—especially when it's paired with roasted potatoes or butternut squash. Sliced Strip Steak with Arugula and Parsley will satisfy your craving for comfort food while still being healthy enough that you can enjoy it guilt-free!

The perfect dish for fall because of the combination of flavors, veggies, and protein, grilled steak is the grilling favorite of any season. You can use the leftovers of any steak grilled the night before, or grill up a fresh ribeye, porterhouse, flank, or strip to go with this delightful salad. The salad features salty Parmesan and capers mixed with onion, arugula, and parsley. The citrus of lemon makes the dressing sparkling, light, and refreshing.

Season the steaks with salt and pepper, and grill over medium-high heat until medium-rare. Slice and serve the steak with the salad for a beautiful meal of crisp, refreshing texture balanced by the succulent beef. Full of flavor, this salad is a perfect meal for a blustery fall evening around the fire pit with family, friends, and a warm drink.
