Slideshow: Salads with Meat

  1. 1/4 cup drained bottled horseradish
  2. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  3. 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  4. 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  5. Coarsely ground black pepper
  6. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons canola oil
  7. Kosher salt
  8. 2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, chopped
  9. 2 small celery ribs, thinly sliced, plus 1/4 cup leaves
  10. 1/3 cup sour cream
  11. 1 pound skirt steak, in 2 pieces
  1. In a bowl, stir 2 tablespoons of the horseradish with the lemon juice, Worcestershire, celery seeds and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Whisk in 1/4 cup of the canola oil in a steady stream; season with salt. Add the tomatoes and celery ribs and leaves, season with salt and pepper and toss.
  2. In a small bowl, stir the sour cream with the remaining 2 tablespoons of horseradish.
  3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Rub the remaining 2 tablespoons of canola oil all over the steak and season with salt and black pepper. Grill the steak over moderately high heat, turning once, until nicely charred, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steak to a work surface and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice the steak across the grain and serve with the tomato salad and horseradish cream.
