  • Cooking Method: Grilling
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: Fusion


  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • Juice of 1 lime

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 400°F).
  2. Rub the flank steak with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill the steak for 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or to your preferred doneness.
  4. While the steak is grilling, prepare the dressing. In a blender, combine the avocado, buttermilk, mayonnaise, garlic, dill, chives, and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Once the steak is done, let it rest for 5 minutes. This helps keep all those tasty juices inside.
  6. Meanwhile, in a large salad bowl, combine the mixed greens, mango, cherry tomatoes, and red onion.
  7. Slice the steak thinly against the grain and add it to the salad.
  8. Drizzle the avocado buttermilk ranch dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap the flank steak for grilled chicken or tofu for a vegetarian twist.
  • Garnishing Options: Add a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese or roasted sunflower seeds for extra crunch and flavor.
  • Cooking Tips: Make sure to let the steak rest before slicing to ensure juiciness. Also, you can use store-bought ranch dressing if you’re in a hurry.
