Steak, chicory and orange salad


1 garlic clove, crushed
4 tsp olive oil
2 sirloin steaks (about 150g each)
2 oranges, juice of 1, 1 segmented
2 tsp sherry vinegar
1½ tsp Dijon mustard
1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
250g white chicory, sliced lengthways
140g red chicory, leaves roughly chopped
50g wild rocket
20g Waitrose LOVE Life dried cherries


1. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat. Mix the garlic with 1 tsp olive oil and use to coat the steaks. Season and griddle the steaks for 2 minutes on each side for medium rare. Set aside to rest.

2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, boil the orange juice until reduced by half. Remove from the heat and stir in the vinegar, mustard and 1 tsp oil; season and set aside.

3. In a bowl, toss the red onion and white chicory with the remaining olive oil and season. Griddle for 1 - 2 minutes on each side (you may need to do this in 2 batches). Toss with the red chicory, rocket, orange segments and warm dressing.

4. Slice the steaks and serve with the warm salad, scattering the cherries over the top.
