Flank Steak and Plum Salad with Creamy Chimichurri Dressing
Ingredients
  • 8  ounces  beef flank steak
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  medium sweet onion, such as Vidalia or Maui, sliced horizontally into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 2  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 6  cups  fresh mache (lamb's lettuce) or baby greens
  • 4  ripe plums, pitted and cut into thin wedges
  • 1  recipe  Creamy Chimichurri Dressing
Directions

1. Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle meat with cumin and salt. Brush onion slices on both sides with oil; sprinkle with pepper. For a charcoal or gas grill, place meat and onion slices on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium-hot heat. Grill meat for 10 to 14 minutes for medium-rare to medium doneness (145 degrees F to 160 degrees F) and onion slices about 10 minutes or until tender, turning both meat and onion slices once halfway through grilling time. Let meat stand for 5 minutes. Thinly slice meat. Coarsely chop onion.

2. Place mache in a large salad bowl or arrange on a large platter. Top with meat, onion, and plums. Drizzle with half of the Creamy Chimichurri Dressing. If desired, pass remaining dressing.
