Grilled Flank Steak Salad Recipe with Basil Dressing

Jump to Recipe

This is such a hearty, healthy, fresh, and vibrant Steak Salad Recipe!  It has tender strips of garlic-rubbed grilled flank steak over grilled romaine, bright tomatoes, and fresh cool basil yogurt dressing.  Now, if you’ve never had grilled romaine, oh man are you in for a treat!  It gets this slightly charred, slightly nutty, deep new amazing flavor that is nothing like the boring lettuce you know.  It’s for this reason, you really only need a few ingredients to add and it’s just perfect.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH THE LEFTOVERS?

If you buy an even bigger flank steak than you need, you can get another dinner out of it.  I highly recommend a quick Stroganoff!  Just slice the flank steak thin and set aside.  Saute some sliced mushrooms in a large pan/skillet with finely diced onion and garlic.  Whisk in broth and sour cream, and then add the flank steak slices in just to warm them up.  Serve with noodles or rice or quinoa.  Click here to get 30 More Leftover Protein Dinner Ideas.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

For this recipe, you will need access to a grill. Ideally, this would be a an outdoor grill, either gas or charcoal. However, you can also use a stovetop grill. If you don’t have a grill available, you can sear the romaine and the steak in a large skillet. You will want to finish the steak in the oven 350 F degrees for 15-20 min.

And mincing garlic is made super easy with a Garlic Press.

For the Basil Yogurt dressing, a blender or mini food processor is perfect for the job.

PREP-AHEAD FOR YOUR FLANK STEAK SALAD RECIPE

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

For this recipe, you can make my Creamy Basil Chive Yogurt Dressing up to 5 days in advance.  The recipe is not in this post, so be sure to click the recipe link for that one.  All ingredients go into the blender and it takes only minutes!

It takes only minutes to make this delicious homemade dressing.  Basil & Chive Yogurt Dressing is perfect for salads, for drizzling over roasted veggies, steak, chicken, or fish, and amazing for dipping fries into!!

You can also make the marinade and marinate the flank steak 2 days in advance.

Can I use any other cut of beef or protein?

Flank steak really is the best for this recipe since it’s so easy to cook and always comes out perfectly tender for me.  However, if you cannot get flank steak, you will want to use another steak that is tender enough to grill, such as strip steak or even filet.  You could also make this recipe with chicken breast or shrimp!

COOK & ASSEMBLE YOUR STEAK SALAD RECIPE

Preheat your grill on high.  The flank steak will grill for about 5-7 minutes per side.  Five minutes will give you a beautiful medium rare.  Seven minutes will be more medium well.  Both will still be lovely and tender.

The romaine takes only 1-2 minutes per side, so I put them off at the end of the cooking.  Make sure to put them on the lower heat section of the grill and watch them closely.  Some char is great flavor!  Too much char will taste burnt and ashy, but you can simply cut off any part that burns too much.

Do I have to grill the lettuce?  Can I use another lettuce?

You do not need to grill the lettuce, you could certainly slice it raw.  I just absolutely love the flavor that the grill imparts for this recipe.  You could also use escarole or green leaf lettuce.  The idea is to get a leafy head of lettuce that can be sliced in half with all of the leaves staying attached.  This way the entire half can grill up nicely.

Slicing the Flank Steak 

Let the flank steak rest for at least 5 minutes so that the juices redistribute into the meat and don’t come running out when you slice it.

To slice it, you will slice thin and on an angle going against the grain (the lines) on the steak.

When you are ready to serve, slice the grape tomatoes in half.  You can either serve the romaine lettuce whole or slice it up.  

ENJOY!  😍 Carrie

Why You Should Make Your Own Gnocchi

First, it’s easy!  I know, I know, it’s obviously easier to buy them already made.  But, unlike pasta, there is no rolling out the dough forever or needing a pasta machine.  Nope, this one can be as rustic as you want and only requires your hands!

And, since it’s so easy, it’s fun to make these with kids or friends!  So, have a Gnocchi-Making Party!  It’s a great excuse to get together.  It’s also a great way to bond with the kiddos and get them in the kitchen with you.

Finally, you can make them healthy!  This version has cauliflower, potato, and gluten free flour.  But you can make them with sweet potatoes or butternut squash or pumpkin.  And when you make anything from scratch, you know exactly what’s going in.  For gnocchi, that means no added preservatives or ingredients you cannot pronounce.

Here are some other sauces that I’ve made with pasta that would taste fantastic with this Cauliflower Gnocchi Recipe:

CAULIFLOWER HEALTH BENEFITS!

Cauliflower is not only versatile, it’s a great Low-Carb diet food full of health benefits!  While it’s low in carbs, it’s high in Fiber and contains so many vitamins and minerals.  Cauliflower is a Cruciferous Veggie, just like Broccoli and Kale, which we all know are extremely good for us.  So, it also contains important Antioxidants which can help to reduce the risk for heart disease and may have anti-cancer effects.
