2 small vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into wedges
2 tbsp chives, cut into 3cm lengths

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil

To make dressing, whisk vinegar, oil & mustard until combined.
Heat frypan over medium-high heat.
Add oil & steaks & cook for 3 min each side or until cooked to your liking.

Slice steaks & place in bowl along with bocconcini, basil, tomatoes, chives, salt & pepper.
Drizzle with dressing & serve warm or at room temperature with a nice red.
