FLATIRON STEAK SALAD WITH SRIRACHA DRESSING

FLATIRON STEAK SALAD WITH SRIRACHA DRESSING


 

This is one of my favorite salads to make. In the summer I like to add fresh watermelon cubes, which really elevates the salad! 

I really like how well the dressing and steak pairs together, it's tangy but sweet. The Sriracha gives a great kick to the salad which helps to create a more flavorful salad. Sometime's salads don't fill me up, adding steak to salad makes it a complete meal.

I normally use Skirt Steak but my butcher was out of it that day, and recommended using a Flatiron Steak instead. I really liked the taste of the Flatiron steak it was tender and well marbled. Going forward I would cook with either of the steak cuts, which is really up to your prefrence.
