Preparation

Croutons: Cut bread into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes to make 4 cups (1 L). In bowl, toss together bread, oil, garlic and salt. Spread on large rimmed baking sheet; toast in 425°F (220°C) oven, stirring once, for 10 minutes or until golden.

Thinly slice steak across the grain on an angle; set aside. Trim stems from arugula; tear into bite-size pieces to make about 6 cups (1.5 L). In large bowl, whisk vinegar, oil, sugar, salt and pepper. Add arugula, tomatoes and croutons; toss to coat. Top with steak and Parmesan cheese.
