Sliced steak over coleslaw, topped with fresh mango salsa

The easy mango salsa is good enough to eat with a spoon and I love to make extra so I can put it on everything. It’s only 5 ingredients and is so easy to make. I like to think of it as the ‘dressing’ for this salad. Just like with every fresh salsa that I make, I like to do it ahead of time so that the flavors have a chance to get fully combine.

 I love making my own dry rubs because it is so easy to do and saves money. You also don’t get any extra weird additives when you do it yourself. This spice combination for this spiced steak salad is a blend of some of my favorite flavors. It pairs perfectly with the refreshing coleslaw and mango salsa.

I love skirt steak because it is a relatively inexpensive cut of meat that tastes delicious. I love to buy the two pack at Sam’s Club and make a double batch because my family loves it so much. I have also used flank steak which is also amazing, just be sure to adjust the cooking times because it is usually a thicker cut.

The biggest tips that I have when you are cooking steak is to

1.) LET IT REST

2.) Slice it against the natural grain

These to steps help keep the steak both tender and juicy. I always let my steak rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
