  • Preheat oven broiler. Season steak with salt and black pepper, then transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet.

  • Broil 4 inches from heat until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) for medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let rest about 10 minutes, then thinly slice against the grain.

  • Stir together corn, bell pepper, red onion, tomato, and jalapeno (if using) in a bowl.

  • Divide lettuce among 4 plates; drizzle each with about 2 tablespoons dressing. Top with steak slices, then with corn mixture. Sprinkle with feta and garnish with chips.

Cook's Note:

Instead of 1 cup corn kernels, you can use kernels from 1 ear grilled fresh corn.

Overall really good! I think it would pair well with almost any way you want to make the steak, I grilled ours since I was grilling the corn. Might try a lime marinade for the steak next time, though. Definitely don't leave off the feta, it really added a nice savory flavor to the sweeter-than-expected dressing. Otherwise wouldn't change a thing, the flavors went excellently together. Read More

I made this recipe as listed. I did find the dressing made fresh had a bit strong cilantro taste. But the next day wow it was so much better! So my only suggestion would be to make the dressing a day ahead if you can. Elsewise this recipe has become our favorite for a weekly dinner. It s pretty on the plate and has excellent flavors. Thx for a great recipe! Read More

We loved this salad! I prepared all the veggies and the dressing ahead of time and then was able to enjoy a glass of wine with my love while he grilled the steak. The cilantro and lime add so much freshness to the dish- it s perfect for summer evenings outside. Read More
