Grilled Steak Salad with Avocado personifies easy Summer cooking, which can all be done in advance. Make the salad dressing with your Thermomix in under a minute, marinate your steak ahead of time (make sure it's resting for at least 2 hours), and have your salad ready to go as a bed for this simple and scrumptious dinner. We chose leafy greens, avocado, cherry tomatoes and cucumber to keep it uncomplicated and allow the flavor of the beef to take centre stage.
