-- Serves
SKILL LEVEL 4 to 6 servings
1 tablespoon steak seasoning
1 tablespoon Mazola® Right Blend Oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 to 1-1/4 pounds skirt steak OR flap meat
2 pounds small new potatoes OR fingerlings, quartered
2 teaspoons salt, optional
1/4 cup cider vinegar
Smokey Chipotle Dressing
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 to 2 tablespoons canned chipotles in adobo sauce (or to taste)
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/3 cup reduced fat sour cream
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup Mazola® Right Blend Oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
Optional garnishes: chopped fresh parsley OR cilantro, lime wedges, avocado slices
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Combine steak seasoning, olive oil and brown sugar in a small bowl.  Spread over surface of steak until thoroughly coated.  Set aside to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.

Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot; add potatoes and salt, if desired.  Cook for 10 minutes or just until tender.  Drain potatoes; sprinkle with vinegar and set aside.

To make dressing:
Combine garlic, chipotles, vinegar, sour cream, water and olive oil in a blender or food processor.  Pulse for 10 to 15 seconds and then puree for 30 seconds until smooth.  Pour into serving bowl. Stir in parsley and cilantro; salt and pepper as desired.

Grill steak for 3 to 5 minutes per side or to desired doneness.  Transfer to cutting board and allow meat to rest for 5 minutes.  Slice steak thinly across the grain.

To assemble the salad, layer romaine into a large shallow bowl or platter; top with warm potatoes and sliced steak.  Drizzle with Smokey Chipotle Dressing.  Sprinkle with additional parsley, cilantro, lime wedges and avocado slices, if desired.  Toss salad and serve immediately.
