  • 1-2 lbs. tri-tip roast
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. black pepper & 1/2 tsp. black pepper, divided
  • 2 heads of romaine lettuce, washed and sliced
  • 1/2 cup canned white corn, drained
  • 1 cup mini peppers, de-seeded and sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 oz. blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Place tri-tip on a baking sheet and sprinkle garlic salt and pepper on all sides of the roast. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Take meat out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before grilling.
  3. Preheat outdoor gas grill to high heat (450°F). If using a charcoal grill, arrange coals to one side of the grill to create direct (high heat) and indirect (low) heating areas.
  4. Place tri-tip directly above the flame and grill for 5-7 minutes on the first side, then flip and grill for an additional 8 minutes to sear the meat and lock in juices. 
  5. Remove from direct heat and place meat on indirect heat and continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 130-135°F (Medium Rare). Remove from the grill and let rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic. 
  7. Add the oil slowly and continue to whisk until mixed thoroughly.
  8. In a large mixing bowl, mix the lettuce, corn, peppers, red onion and blue cheese. Scoop the lettuce mixture into a serving dish and place a generous portion of tri-tip on top of the lettuce mixture. 
  9. Drizzle with the balsamic vinaigrette and Enjoy!
