1 (4 ounce)

1 (6.5 ounce) bag

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*).
I was really disappointed with the marinade and toughness of the steak. I marinated it for a good 6 hours but the marinade does not have enough liquid. I even used tenderized flank steak. I would suggest using a different juicier marinade.
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!
The taste is so good and refresh with the flank steak!
Recipe Group 7/13/13. Very light and refreshing salad. The tomato mixture with the basil was delicious. Garlic was not overpowering. And the balsamic dressing was just enough with the EVOO to not need any other additional dressing. I will make this again.
We all loved this...my son is flank steak addict. My father used to just put this over arugula and rice...this is so much better and healthier. Great Job!!
