- Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
- Grill vegetable packet, covered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
- Let steak stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the salad greens, raspberries and grilled vegetables. In a small bowl, whisk the salt, pepper and remaining oil and vinegar; pour over salad and toss to coat. Slice steak across the grain; arrange over salad.
