Nothing says "dinner salad" more than one with steak and satisfying avocado. Dreaming of summer grilling with this one...
- 1 pound flank steak
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 medium avocados, halved
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 3 cups fresh spinach
- 1 cup cilantro leaves
- 1/4 cup sliced red onion
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Juice of 1 lime
Heat a griddle pan to high and season steak with salt + pepper. Sear steak for 3-5 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and rest while preparing the rest of the salad.
Submerge the red onion in half of the lime juice with honey and set aside.
Use an immersion blender to purée one avocado, garlic, lime juice and a pinch of salt. Add olive oil or water to reach desired consistency. Set aside.
Arrange the spinach, cilantro, remaining avocado (sliced) on a platter. Sprinkle onions over the greens. Slice the steak thinly against the grain and place on top of your salad. Drizzle with the dressing.
