  9. one-third cup mayonnaise
  10. One-fourth cup sour cream
  11. Worcestershire, 1 teaspoon
  12. Two tablespoons of lemon juice
  13. two Spoonful of white vinegar
  14. Two tablespoons of chives
  15. One tablespoon of heavy cream
  16. 4 ounces of shredded blue cheese



  1. In a small bowl, mix together all dressing ingredients. Stir until completely combined and set aside in refrigerator.
  2. Remove the meat from the refrigerator 1 hour before grilling. This will allow meat to be brought to room temp.
  3. Heat your grill on high for 10 minutes. While the grill is heating, pat dry your your meat dry with a paper towel and generously salt and pepper.
  4. Place your meat on the hot grill and allow to cook without moving for 4 minutes. Turn and cook for 3-4 more minutes and remove. Allow to rest under tented foil for 10 minutes.
  5. While your meat is resting, brush your lettuce, avocado and onions with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Reduce the heat to medium-low and place all the vegetables on the grill, oiled side down. Brush the opposite side with oil. Once charring begins the vegetables are ready to turn. (About 2-4 minutes). Turn the lettuce and onions over and remove the avocado. Continue cooking until opposite side has some charring.
  6. While still warm, roughly chop the lettuce and slice the avocado. Then, separate onion rings.
  7. On a large platter arrange the lettuce, onions, avocado, halved tomatoes and sliced steak.
  8. Drizzle dressing over the top and sprinkle with extra blue cheese and chives.
