Happy July everyone!!
In honor of National Grilling Month, we’re starting things off by sharing one of our go-to meals during the summer – Grilled Steak and Corn Salad! This salad is super flavorful and easy to prepare – making it a perfect summertime family meal-in-one!
We’re also teaming up with OXO today to show you some of their awesome, functional cooking and grilling tools in action so summer meals like this one are even easier to prepare!
When it comes to grilling steak – sometimes simple seasonings are best! Sure – we love a good marinated steak sometimes, but when your steak is tender already, just a simple seasoning of salt and pepper is all you really need to make a steak taste great! For our grilled steak and corn salad, we simply seasoned then tenderized a petite sirloin using OXO’s Bladed Meat Tenderizer. This handy tool is something that everyone should really have in their kitchen! It does a great job tenderizing even inexpensive cuts of beef (like the beef we used in this recipe) and that’s great for any family budget!
Next, use OXO’s Silicone Basting Brush to brush some olive oil on the steak before grilling so it doesn’t stick while it cooks.
All of the cooking for this salad is done on the grill – making cooking and clean up easy (and you won’t have to heat up your kitchen on a hot summer day)!
At the same time the steak is grilling, also grill your corn! (Those OXO 16-Inch Tongs are perfect for grilling too – their longer length allows you to reach the grill without having to get too close to the heat!)
Then – once the corn has cooled a bit, peel the charred corn husks away and use OXO’s Corn Stripper to cut the kernels off the corn. (It’s so easy with this tool – and the kernels collect in the little compartment rather than bouncing all over your counter top!)
Slice your cooked steak into strips once it has had a chance to rest and add it to a salad made from crisp salad greens, the grilled corn kernels, olives, tomatoes, some crumbled blue cheese and some hearty homemade croutons. Then pour on some of our simple red wine vinaigrette that you’ve mixed up in OXO’s convenient OXO Good Grips Little Salad Dressing Shaker and serve.
Your family will love this salad!
