Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Mix tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, 1 clove minced garlic, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl; toss to coat. Cover bowl and refrigerate.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Place steak in a large resealable bag; add 1 clove minced garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, and pepper. Seal the bag and distribute the oil mixture over the steak.
  4. Cook the steak on the preheated grill to your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Let stand for 5 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain.
  5. Divide lettuce onto 4 serving plates; drizzle about 1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar and 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil onto each lettuce portion. Top each salad with 1/4 the steak and 1/4 the tomato mixture.

Ideal healthy summertime meal, especially when it's hot. Easy enough to make and tastes great. I however used another marinade for the flank steak (not that there is anything wrong with the one noted for the recipe) and used a Spring Mix that I added Butter Lettuce to because my store does not carry a Butter Lettuce Mix. Light and filling without leaving you stuffed. (recipe made for *RECIPE GROUP*).

Recipe Group Selection: 13, July 2013 ~ Flank steak is the one cut of steak that I do enjoy, and this was a good recipe to use it on. I marinated the steak over night, so it was well seasoned when it was time to grill. I mixed up the olive oil, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, garlic and onion (I added those) in the morning so that the flavors would be well blended. I did use a mixture of romaine and spinach leaves as that is what I had on hand. This was very quick to pull together and made for a nice filling meal on a hot summer day. The grilling time of 5 minutes per side at medium-high temps produced a perfect 140° steak. I served this salad with ‘Unbelievable Grilled Garlic Bread’ from AR and we had a delicious meal.

This was fabulous! I did not have flank steak, so substituted flat iron steak. My husband hates tomatoes but he literally cleaned his plate! Thanks for sharing!
