For the Steak:

  1. Combine the ingredients for the flank steak marinade. Add the steak and let marinate for 2 hours.
  2. Heat a grill over medium high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and generously season with salt and pepper. Place the steak on the grill and grill for 4-6 minutes on each side, turning 90 degrees halfway through to get crisscross grill marks. Cook until medium/medium rare, or medium, depending on your preference, and then remove to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice the flank steak against the grain and use for the salad.

For the Salad:

  1. Arrange everything on a large platter and serve with the vinaigrette drizzled on top.

Cilantro Vinaigrette:

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the cilantro vinaigrette in a high powered blender and blend for 60 seconds until very smooth.
  2. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately. Or you can refrigerate the vinaigrette for up to 5 days.
