Stir all the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.

Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot or build a medium-hot heat braai fire. Brush the steaks with olive oil and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side for medium-rare if grilling, or sear over the braai until well caramelised. Season with salt and pepper. (Fry/braai for longer, if you prefer your steak to be well-done).

Serve each steak with a dollop of the sauce and top with the fresh salsa.

Tip: To make different flavoured sauces, add any of the following to the yoghurt pesto, whole grain mustard, chopped herbs, sundried tomatoes or chopped capers.
