Make the lemon-tahini yogurt
In a small bowl, stir together the lemon-tahini dressing base, yogurt, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] cold water. Season generously to taste with salt and pepper.
Prep and cook your protein
- Pat your protein dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper and the harissa spice rub.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein.
Cook, turning once, until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Cook, turning frequently, until well browned and your desired doneness is reached. For medium-rare, that’s 4 to 6 minutes for rib-eyes and New York strips and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons.
Transfer your protein to a plate. While your protein is cooking, prepare the salad.
Make the chicory-grape salad
- Trim the root end from the endive; cut the endive crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices.
- Remove any stems from the grapes; cut the grapes in half.
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely tear the leaves.
In a medium bowl, toss together the endive, grapes, mint, peas, and sherry vinaigrette. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Spread the lemon-tahini yogurt onto individual plates and top with your protein. Garnish with the chicory-grape salad and serve.
