Ingredients
  

For the steak:

  • 1 1/2 lbs flank steak
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

For the salad:

  • 6 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 ear sweet corn, sliced off the cob (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup pepitas, optional
  • 1/2 cup queso fresco
  • Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing

Instructions
 

  • Place the steak in a large baking sheet and squeeze lime juice over the steak.
  • In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and coriander.
  • Add the spice rub to the steak, turning to coat the meat thoroughly with the rub and pressing with your fingers to help the rub stick to the meat. If you have time, cover the steak with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour. You can let it marinate for up to 4 hours.
  • When ready to grill, preheat a clean, oiled grill to medium-high heat.
  • Place the steak on the hot grill and grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, depending on your preference. The steak should be 130-135°F for medium rare, and 145°F for medium.
  • Transfer the steak to a large cutting board and cover it loosely with aluminum foil. Let the steak rest for 10 minutes. Cut the steak against the grain into thin slices.
  • To assemble the salad, place the mixed greens on a large platter. Add the steak, corn, tomatoes, avocado, red onion, pepitas, and queso fresco. Drizzle with desired amount of dressing. Serve immediately.
