March came and went and here we are… it’s already April. I recently pulled out my Bon Appétit Grilling Issue to get inspired for grilling season. Mike and I grill all year long, but grilling always reminds me of summer. In an attempt to feel even closer to warmer weather, we fired up the grill and decided to make Skirt Steak with Parsley Parmesan Salad.
You can use any cut of steak you’d like, but I love how quickly the skirt steak comes together and it’s usually more affordable than flank steak. For medium rare, grill each side for about 4 minutes over medium-high heat.
Parsley Parmesan Salad
The parsley parmesan salad is unique. The lemon really brightens up the rich flavors of the steak which makes the flavor combination really refreshing.
Here’s to sunnier days ahead!
