  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano (2 tsp/10 mL dried)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup wine vinegar

Place steak in shallow dish. In small bowl whisk together oregano, 2 tablespoons (25 mL) of the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, pepper and salt. Remove 2 tablespoons (25 mL) and pour over steak, turning to coat; marinate for 15 minutes. Whisk remaining oil into lemon mixture for dressing; set aside.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 7 minutes. Add green beans; cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until pasta is tender but firm and beans are tender-crisp. Drain and chill under cold water; drain well and place in bowl. Add tomatoes and dressing; toss to coat.

Meanwhile, place steak on greased grill over medium-high heat or under broiler; cook turning once, for 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare or to desired doneness. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve on top of salad.
