Grilled flank steak with black bean salsa
In summer we grill every chance! One of my favorite ways to grill meat is to top it with fresh salad or salsa. A couple of great examples of this: grilled flank steak with tomatoes, red onions and balsamic vinegar and grilled chicken bruschetta.
This steak dish has a ton of flavor! The flank steak is seasoned with cumin and garlic and grilled to perfection, then topped with a fresh black bean, corn, and tomato salsa for a quick and easy weekday meal.
This dish is dairy-free, gluten-free, and takes less than 30 minutes.
Variations and tips:
In this Tex-Mex version, the flavors can easily be customized to suit your family's tastes.
- Make it sharp with some chopped jalapens
- Sweeten it by adding some chopped pineapple
- Do it all 30 by swapping the corn and beans for a simple pico de gallo.
- Go on. Season the steak and prepare the salsa a day in advance if necessary.
