Steak Pasta Salad

One of my favorite summer recipes this steak pasta salad is a full meal
and has a bit of a bite in the salad dressing - we make it at least once a month during summer!

Marinate Flank or Flap Steak in either
Salt & Pepper or McCormick Steak Seasoning

Cook, Drain, & Cool Pasta
(you need about 2 cups)

Wash and chop half a head of lettuce.

Slice Roma or Cherry Tomatoes
(I used about a cup chopped or two whole tomatoes)

Add tomatoes to salad greens!

Mix Dressing:
1/2 cup vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp oregano, 2 tbsp mayonnaise,
1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Add some cooked and cooled corn (`-2 cups) to your salad.

Grill your steak.  3-5 Minutes on each side
over medium high heat.

Add pasta to the salad.

Chop Steak into bite size pieces.

Add steak to your salad.

Add dressing and toss to coat.

Serve with garlic bread and eat until your button bursts
(or maybe that is just me)!
What's your favorite summer meal?!?
