Light, refreshing, and simple to make, Flat Iron Steak Salad combines dried fruit, Feta cheese, and fresh greens. The steak cooks in about 10 minutes and is packed with flavor. The remaining ingredients are easy to find in your refrigerator and pantry.

Flat iron steak is cut from the shoulder area of the cow, which yields a flavorful, but sometimes tough cut of meat. You’ll want to cook this cut until medium-rare and thinly slice it against the grain, to keep it tender. If flat iron is not available, flank steak, from the belly muscle, is a great substitute.

This recipe takes on a Mediterranean flavor profile with dried fruit, Feta cheese, and Greek salad dressing. You can swap these ingredients out with similar ones, to travel the world in flavors. Try bell peppers and Italian dressing, or cucumbers and sesame dressing.
