Preheat your grill to medium high heat and oil the grill grate. Cook the steak for 3-5 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer reads the desired doneness. Medium Rare:145°F ; Medium: 160°F; Well Done: 170°F.
Remove steak from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes to let the juices redistribute. Slice against the grain in thin slices.
For the salad: In a large shallow serving bowl, arrange the mixed greens, tomatoes, mozzarella balls, avocado, red onion and basil leaves. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the sliced steak. Drizzle with the reserved balsamic dressing. Note: You can also serve in individual portions on smaller plates.
