flank steak salad

a recipe by

Sometimes, you just crave a good steak. But I like to combine mine with vegetables as well, and what better way than with a yummy steak salad. A plethora of flavor in each bite from roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, caramelized onions, cranberries, feta and avocado. Whoa! Delish! Hint: Sometimes I don't even use a separate dressing, because the oils from the peppers and artichoke hearts flavor and dress it enough.

    Season steak with steak rub on both sides. Coat grill with oil, and grill steak over low heat until steak is cooked to medium-rare (or your preferred temp). When done, let rest for 5-10 minutes, then cut into thin slices.
