Modern Greek Salad with steak and fried zuchinni

The weather has turned warmer and it is time to bring out the grill. Skirt steak can be quickly grilled on high heat. The Greek salad with a modern twist and fried zucchini are a nice light addition to dinner.

This recipe fails to mention the need for something for the flour to adhere to. Keep the zucchini moist or dip in milk or egg whites so the flour will stick.

The Zucchini fries up nicely in a little oil.

  • 1 zucchini wash and sliced into 1/2 x 3 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg whisked gently
  • oil for frying zucchini
  • Romaine lettuce

  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat the grill to med-high heat.
  2. In the meantime prepare the Greek Salad. Typically Greek salad does not include lettuce. The lettuce adds crunchiness, so feel free to add it or leave it out. Wash and tear up the lettuce and add to two bowls.
  3. Wash and dice the red pepper and cucumber and add to the bowl. Top with crumbled feta cheese and Kalamata olives. Add a small amount of dressing when you are ready to serve. I used Marzetti, Simply Dressed balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
  4. Prepare the zucchini. Place the flour, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl or on a plate. Whisk one egg in a shallow bowl. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cups oil to a frying pan. Heat on medium high heat.
  5. When the oil is hot enough. Dredge zucchini pieces through egg and then through the flour. Place in the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Place on a plate covered with paper towel.
  6. Salt and pepper both sides of the steak. When the grill is hot place the steak on the it. Cook until desired doneness.
