Steak Salad Recipe

Think of this grilled steak salad as Meat and Potatoes 2.0. In this hearty Steak Salad recipe, the well-known pair are joined by green beans, corn and arugula and tossed with a sweet and spicy ancho-chili vinaigrette. Our easy recipe features versatile and inexpensive flank steak (bonus: it's tasty, too), so for fork-tender results, thinly slice the steak across the grain before adding to the salad.
