Story

Chef Shanna brings back the knife-and-fork wedge salad of our dreams—this time with a summery feel. She loads wedges of crisp romaine with fresh corn, tomatoes, and a chive–sour cream dressing. Hickory smoked almonds add crunch and a barbecue-like smokiness. Serve with grilled (or seared) steak for a super-satisfying, seasonal main everyone will love.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Halve romaine heart lengthwise, keeping stem intact, and rinse thoroughly. Rinse remaining produce. Halve grape tomatoes (or leave whole to save time). Thinly slice chives. Roughly chop hickory smoked almonds, or leave in bag and crush with the bottom of a heavy pan.

  2. Prepare corn and make garlic paste

    Prepare corn and make garlic paste

    Shuck corn, discarding husks and silk; slice off kernels, discarding cob. Mince garlic and, still on cutting board, sprinkle over ⅛ teaspoon salt. Using a large knife, carefully scrape over mixture at a 45° angle, pressing down. Repeat until garlic is broken down and a paste forms.

  3. Make creamy chive dressing

    Make creamy chive dressing

    In a small bowl, combine sour cream, white wine vinegar, garlic paste, half of chives (save remainder for garnish), 2 teaspoons water, 2 teaspoons olive oil, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Whisk until fully combined.

  4. Grill steaks

    Grill steaks

    If using a grill pan, place it over medium-high heat now. Pat steaks dry with paper towel and season all over with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. When grill is just smoking, add steaks and cook until charred and medium rare, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to plate and set aside to rest for about 5 minutes.

  5. Plate steak wedge salad
