Joseph DeNicola & Anthony D'Amico

Serves 6


  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 bunch scallions, cleaned
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil (plus extra for grilling)
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 2 ½ LBS of Beef Tenderloin sliced into 12 equal portions (About 3 OZ each), lightly pounded.

Transfer the steak to a carving board and let it rest for 5 minutes.

Step 4: Blanch Asparagus for 2 minutes. Slice Zucchini & Squash on Bias. Slice Tomatoes straight across. Toss w/ Olive Oil, sea salt & fresh basil. Grill over medium-low heat until soft and tender.

Step 6: Toss greens w/ remaining dressing and orange on platter. Garnish w/ shaved Grana Padano.
