Marinated skirt steak, summer salad and zucchini fries

I’ve created the perfect summer night dish whether you’re cooking for your family, a large BBQ or a fun night in with your sweetheart <3

Marinated Skirt Steak
1lb skirt steak
½ cup vegetable oil
5-6 garlic cloves chopped
½ red onion sliced
¼ tsp Salt and pepper
2 zucchini
1 tsp olive oil

Marinate steak overnight in vegetable oil, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Preheat your grill, or in my case my trusty Calphalon grill pan, to medium high heat. Grill the steak 4-5 minutes on each side for a tender medium rare. Let the steak rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to seal in before slicing and serving. This steak with melt like butter in your mouth. While the steak is resting grill up your zucchini fries. Simply cut the zucchini into wedges, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and grill until desired tenderness.

Summer Salad
1 cucumber
3 tomatoes
½ red onion diced
½ cup Feta cheese
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
Salt/Pepper to taste
Largely dice cucumber, tomato, and red onion, add feta then toss in olive oil and red wine vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve cold. This light and crunchy dish is the perfect accompaniment to any summer BBQ.
