Char Grilled Steak Salad with Juicy Grilled Vegetables

This healthy and flavorful grilled steak salad recipe is simple to put together and the combination of grilled steak and juicy grilled vegetables works very nicely. You can use all zucchini instead of half zucchini and half eggplant if you prefer. If you have a problem with eggplant tasting bitter, then put salt over the slices and leave for half an hour. When you rinse them, the bitterness will disappear with the salt. You can use any cut of meat you want for this steak salad but it might be a good idea to choose something good like top sirloin. If you prefer more flavor and do not mind that the meat is slightly tougher, go for flank steak instead or London broil.

The dressing for this steak salad is made with lemon, fresh herbs, chili, garlic and more, to add plenty of aromatic flavor to the grilled steak and vegetables. The veggies will obviously take less time to cook than the meat so add them when the second side of the steak is half-cooked and everything should be done at the same time. Do not forget to let the meat rest for at least five minutes; this allows the juices to redistribute and makes it incredibly tender.

Although a charcoal grill might well be your grill of choice when it comes to grilling meat and veggies, because of the wonderful smoky aroma and flavor it infuses in them, you can make this on a gas grill or even an indoor grill if that is all you have. You can control the temperature more easily on a gas or electric grill but it will be a tradeoff with the smoky factor, so just use whatever you happen to have.
