My dad recently found out that he has high cholesterol. He likes to ignore this fact and pretend that he doesn't run a greater risk for heart problems, but me and my mom care about him too much to let it go un-noticed.

I found this recipe for a steak that is served over a crisp green salad and garnished with Parmesan cheese that is sure to please both dad (the steak) and the doctor (the salad). I looked up the name of this dish, tagliata, and in Italian it means cut, cutting, trim, or clip...which is exactly what I want to do with my dad's high cholesterol!
