| What a lovely and simple salad idea! It sort of plays off of one of my favorite all time meal styles ... the "warm" salad. It's comforting and relaxing and warm, while still retaining most of the nutrients and vibrancy of a full raw salad. It exists somewhere between cooked and ... not cooked.|
This particular salad is incredibly easy. It's little more than a 1/4 head of romaine lettuce, some flank steak and a small handful of asparagus. It's liberally brushed with Caesar dressing, is seasoned with salt and pepper, then it is grilled!
The romaine goes on a plate, followed by the asparagus, then the steak is sliced thin and added to the plate. Finally, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and ... VIOLA! Grilled Steak Caesar!
Note: I actually did this with a grill pan in my kitchen. Sure, the smoky flavor of an outdoor grill will complement this dish, but ... if it's cold and you're in the mood, you can grill this up, indoors!
Second Note: I tend to like my flank steak a bit on the raw side. Flank can get raw and tough if overcooked. Cook to your desired temperature, but keep in mind a little rare and very thin slices will go a great distance towards giving a nice tender steak!
