  • Prepare the Bowl
  • Grill the corn
  • Prepare the quinoa according to the link above.
  • Shred the cheese and slice the limes.
  • Prepare the dressing
  • Avocado Salsa
  • Prepare the avocado salsa by whisking together the jalapeno, olive oil, lime juice and cilantro.
  • Pour over the avocado, mango, red onion and tomatoes and season with salt to taste. If you make the salsa ahead of time, do not season until serving so as to not create more liquid.
  • Serve everything together with the quinoa on the bottom.

Notes

Having trouble with flank steak cooking evenly? It's tapered at one end which can result in flank steak being overcooked at one end and rare a the other. We cut the meat in half and start the thick piece first, followed by the smaller side. Either way the meat will be cut up so no one will know that you didn't cook it in one big piece.
