Steak Salad with Herbs
1 shallot, thinly sliced crosswise, separated into rings
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1 medium eggplant, cut lengthwise into 1-inch wedges, wedges halved crosswise
2 ears of corn, husked
1 pound hanger or skirt steak
2 cups baby arugula
2 cups (packed) assorted fresh tender herb leaves (such as basil, cilantro, and mint)
Toss shallot and vinegar in a small bowl; let sit 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 cup oil. Season vinaigrette with salt and pepper; set aside.
Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Brush eggplant and corn with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill, turning often, until tender and charred in spots, 10–15 minutes; let cool. Cut kernels from cobs.
Meanwhile, season steak with salt and pepper and grill until medium-rare, 5–7 minutes per side for hanger steak, about 2 minutes per side for skirt steak. Let rest, then thinly slice against the grain.
Toss arugula, herbs, eggplant, corn, steak, and reserved vinaigrette in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper.
