Marinated Steak and Salad

My mom left a giant round top steak in the fridge for me to marinade. When I was trying to figure out something to make a marinade out of, and that's when she walked in the house with groceries, including a Trader Joe's Soyaki Marinade for the steak. So I just used that, threw in a chopped jalapeño to the marinade and put it all in a ziptop bag and stuck it in the fridge for 2 hours and then flipped it over for another 2 hours. My dad grilled it and I made a salad out of every vegetable we had in the fridge! Anyways, it all turned out delicious, especially with the tasty dressing I made for the salad. Without further ado...

Cooked meat. Sooo tasty!

All I did was put the meat in a ziptop bag, along with half the bottle of Soyaki Marinade sauce from Trader Joe's. I minced a whole jalapeño and put that in there as well. My dad used the marinade to baste the meat in while on the grill. It came out so delicious and tender!


Vegetable Salad with Vinaigrette


I mixed in a small bowl, a couple tablespoons of basil olive oil (regular olive oil would be fine too), couple tablespoons of white balsamic vinegar (also from Trader Joe's), 2 cloves of minced garlic, a teaspoon of lemon zest, and a tablespoon or so of lemon juice. Then add some kosher salt and some fresh ground black pepper. Whisk together with a fork, and pour over the salad.


The salad consisted of spinach, arugala, some chopped cucumber, chopped celery, tomatoes, red bell pepper, and thinly sliced red onion. Mix together and pour the dressing over. The dressing was so good, garlicky but tasty!
