I am always on the hunt for salads that do not require any cooking this time of year. This flank steak salad with blue cheese, figs, blackberries, and kiwi fits the bill. Today I am joining Mary Ann (Classic Casual Home), Annie (Most Lovely Things), Elizabeth,(Pinecones and Acorns) and Sue (View from Great Island) and we are sharing some of our favorite summer salads.
First Marinate the flank steak
FLANK STEAK MARINADE
One tablespoon of chopped garlic

This looks amazing! I love the addition of berries and figs. Summer salad goodness at its finest! I’ll make it tonight!

now this is original, a have-to-try!
is there anything you cannot do ms Cindy? Steve is a very lucky man!
This salad sounds so refreshing and looks so elegant! What a winner for a simple summer meal with perhaps a thin slice of toasted bread and some herbal iced tea!

This is gorgeous. I would give my husband my portion of the steak, but that’s the beauty of a composed salad–all the ingredients are separate and you can focus on what you want.
Here, we won’t have blackberries for another couple of weeks. They grow wild all over, as do figs (though we planted a fig tree a few years ago and it looks like we will finally get some fruit soon chez nous). One of my favorite summer pastimes is to go foraging for fruit. Even a morning jog is more eating breakfast picked fresh from the side of a road that sees one car a day than about running.

Cindy this looks delicious! I am with you on cooking in the summer, I do not like to make anything that takes a lot of effort. Ok, I take that back I will make a lot of effort for a dessert.
I cannot wait to try this!
