This six-ingredient salad gets a ton of flavor from an ingenious paste of garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. The quick buzz to form the paste and over the high heat in the skillet the aromatic paste sears into the flesh of the steak imparting loads of flavor. The quick hit of high heat then few minutes of rest ensure the steak will be super juicy when sliced. Keep it simple with just the arugula or toss in some seared asparagus, onion and tomatoes for a full dinner salad. The juices from the steak will dress it nicely but a quick hit of red wine vinegar will brighten the dish nicely.
