Argentina is high on my list of places I would love to visit. Everyone I know who has gone there has come back raving about the beauty, the people, the architecture in the cities, the wine, and the food! Especially the steak.

I can’t hop over to Buenos Aires right now but that doesn’t mean I can’t “visit” vicariously by making dishes reminiscent of the area. Or that I can’t enjoy those dishes with a nice glass of Argentinian Malbec.

I was short on time (and to be honest – energy) so I used a shortcut for this Argentinian Steak Salad. Rather than make chimichurri sauce (a classic Argentinian condiment), marinade for my steak, and salad dressing, I used Lia’s gluten free Chimichurri salad dressing for the marinade and dressing (Lia’s makes two other great gluten free salad dressings: Classic Vinaigrette and Ginger). So easy, so delish!

Someday I will be sipping a glass of Malbec and eating grilled Gaucho Steak while watching a polo match in Argentina, but for now, I am really enjoying this salad and I hope you will as well.

Gluten Free Argentinian Steak Salad Recipe

1½ pounds flank steak
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup Lia’s Chimichurri Dressing, divided
12 ounces small fresh mozzarella balls, cut in half
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
½ red onion, very thinly sliced
½ cup chopped flat leaf parsley


Season the steak generously with salt and pepper. Place in a large food storage bag and add ½ cup dressing. Let marinate at room temperature for 10 – 30 minutes (or refrigerate for up to 8 hours). Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the marinade.

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Cook the steak 5 minutes per side. Let sit for 10 minutes.

Toss the mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, red onion slices and parsley with ¼ cup dressing. Arrange on a platter. Slice the steak and lay on top of the salad. Drizzle the steak with the remaining ¼ cup dressing.
