Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe


For dressing: In a food processor, pulse all ingredients together until combined but still coarse. Adjust with additional salt & pepper if needed, to taste.

For salad: Preheat grill and oil grates. Mix butter with Country Onion Herb Veggie Shaker. Generously butter both sides of bread slices with seasoned butter. Grill bread for 2 min. per side, or until toasted with nice grill marks. Let cool, then cut into 1-inch cubes. Meanwhile, brush zucchini, yellow squash, and leek with olive oil and grill for 2 to 3 min. per side, or until nicely charred. Cut veggies into thick slices and toss with bread cubes. Add apple and arugula. Drizzle half the dressing over salad and toss.

For steaks: Keep grill heated and oil grates again. Season each pork steak liberally with Georgia Boys All-Purpose BBQ Rub. Grill steaks around the outside edge of the coals (or heat source) for 6 to 8 min. per side, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Remove from grill and serve alongside salad, drizzled with remaining dressing.
