Grilled Flank Steak Salad

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 25 min.


4 servings

"This is one of our favorite recipes," writes Mitzi Sentiff of Annapolis, Maryland. "The marinade gives the meat such a wonderful flavor." TIP: "All you need to complete this meal is some good bread," Mitzi notes.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef flank steak (3/4 pound)
  • 1 package (5 ounces) spring mix salad greens
  • 1 plum tomato, cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup sliced radishes
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 green onions, cut into 1-inch strips


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the first six ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup into a shallow dish; add steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for dressing.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from steak. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 11-12 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Cut across the grain into thin slices.
  3. In a large serving bowl, combine the greens, tomato, radishes, celery, onions and beef. Drizzle with reserved marinade; toss to coat.
