Paleo Steak Salad with Grilled Onions & Tomato Vinaigrette

Bon Appetit has really come through for me this issue!  Here's another amazing summer salad that is tasty and satisfying.  

1 lb flank, skirt or hanger steak (I used a grassfed flank steak)
salt & pepper
2 medium tomatoes, halved
2 tbs minced shallots
2 tbs red or white wine vinegar
1 tbs tomato paste
1/4 cup olive oil
1 red onion sliced
Greens - whatever you can find! I used baby kale, spinach, collards and red leaf lettuce + some fresh herbs (I tore up some basil and tarragon)
Sliced almonds

Sprinkle both sides of steak with salt and pepper, let come to room temp.

Make the dressing:  Grate cut sides of tomato, discard skins. Whisk the tomato pulp with shallots, vinegar, tomato paste and olive oil.  Salt & pepper to taste.

Start your grill and put the onions slices down with a little olive oil brushed on top.  As soon as they begin to sfoten and char a bit take them off and let them cool a bit.  Then grill up that steak - for my grassfed steak that my husband likes medium rare it doesn't take long!  Figure about 3-5 minutes each side for med-rare.  Put it on a cutting board and let it rest about 10 minutes then slice thinly against the grain.

Put out a bed of greens, top with onions and steak.  Drizzle with vinaigrette and throw some sliced almonds on there.
