Anne Burrell serves up a classic steak-and-salad combo for a summery dinner

Chef Anne Burrell adds big flavor to grilled steak with briny bagna càuda and amps up classic Caesar salad with crunchy kale.

Celebrity chef and television personality Anne Burrell is joining TODAY to share a few of her favorite summer cookout recipes. She shows us how to make grilled skirt steak with briny bagna càuda sauce and a kale Caesar salad.

I love how the briny bagna càuda cuts through the meaty richness of the grilled steak. The combination is a total flavor explosion. Once you try this, you won't want to go back to bottled steak sauce ever again!

This recipe takes all the traditional flavors of a classic Caesar salad and adds in the incredible texture of fresh green kale. The bold flavors stand up perfectly to the toothsome leaves. It's a really refreshing and satisfying salad.
