Let's Make It
Score steak on both sides with shallow cross-cuts; place in shallow dish. Mix 1/4 cup dressing and 1 tsp. garlic until blended; pour over steak. Turn to evenly coat both sides of steak. Refrigerate 4 hours to marinate.
Heat greased grill to medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Grill steak 12 to 15 min. or until medium doneness (160°F), turning after 7 min. Transfer to cutting board; let stand 5 min.
Meanwhile, whisk water, cilantro, parsley, remaining dressing and garlic until blended. Combine peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and onions in large bowl. Add 2/3 of the dressing mixture; mix lightly.
Cover large platter with lettuce. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices. Spoon vegetable mixture onto 1/3 of the platter; repeat with meat, then cheese. Drizzle meat with remaining dressing mixture.
How to Easily Peel a Head of Garlic
Microwave head of garlic on HIGH 20 sec. Then, squeeze the head to remove the cloves.
Substitute 1-1/3 cups chopped English cucumbers for the sliced baby cucumbers.
This is a great salad to serve as part of a buffet since it doesn’t need to be served hot. For a burst of flavor, serve with lime wedges.
This tender steak can be marinated up to 24 hours before grilling as directed.
