Try This: Whole30 Grilled Steak and Charred Onion Salad

SERVES 4 | PREP: 15 min | GRILL: 15 min


1 flank steak or skirt steak (16 to 20 ounces)
1 tablespoon cumin seeds, lightly crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 large onion
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3/4 cup Whole30-compliant mayonnaise
Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
2 teaspoons Whole30-compliant hot sauce
8 cups chopped butterhead or iceberg lettuce
2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, and diced
Chopped fresh cilantro


PREHEAT a grill to medium-high heat (375°F) or a grill pan over medium-high heat.

GRILL THE STEAK AND ONIONS: Season the steak with the cumin seeds, salt, and pepper. Cut the onion into ½-inch-thick slices. Drizzle the steak and onions with the olive oil.

GRILL the steak and onion slices over direct heat, turning once, until the onion is lightly charred, 5 to 6 minutes, and the steak is cooked to desired doneness, 15 to 20 minutes for medium (160°F). Remove the steak and onion and let rest for 5 minutes.

MAKE THE DRESSING: Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime zest and juice, and hot sauce.

THINLY slice the steak against the grain and coarsely chop the onions. Place the lettuce in a serving bowl and top with the steak and onions. Drizzle the dressing over the salad. Top with the avocado and cilantro.
