To make a juicy steak and tomato salad, you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 pound flank steak, skirt steak, or other thin-cut steak
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Season the steak with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Heat a grill pan or grill over medium-high heat.
- Grill the steak for 3-4 minutes per side, or until cooked to the desired doneness.
- Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
- While the steak is resting, combine the tomatoes, red onion, parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
- Once the steak has rested, slice it thinly and add it to the bowl with the tomatoes.
- Toss to combine and serve immediately.
Tips for making a juicy steak:
- Choose a thin-cut steak, such as flank steak or skirt steak. These steaks are less likely to dry out than thicker steaks.
- Don’t overcook the steak. Cook it to the desired doneness and then remove it from the heat immediately.
- Let the steak rest for 5 minutes before slicing. This will allow the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more tender and juicy steak.
Tips for making a delicious tomato salad:
- Use a variety of tomatoes in different colors and shapes. This will make the salad more visually appealing and flavorful.
- Choose ripe tomatoes. Ripe tomatoes will have a deep color and a sweet flavor.
- Slice the tomatoes thinly. This will allow them to absorb the flavors of the dressing.
- Add other ingredients to the salad, such as cucumber, avocado, or feta cheese.
