2 Tbsp red onion, chopped

4-6 leaves fresh basil, sliced in fine ribbons

3 oz sirloin steak

1 oz mozzarella cheese pearls

Start up the grill and set it to medium heat.  Mix Spring mix, tomatoes, onions, and basil.   Combine vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper; pour dressing over salad mix and toss.  Grill steak for 3-4 minutes per side until cooked to desired temperature.  Let steak rest off the grill for a few minutes to let juices settle.  Cut steak into thin slices.  Layer on top of salad, add mozzarella pearls, and dig in!
