For the Raspberry Chipotle Dressing and Marinade:

For the Salad:


  1. Make the raspberry chipotle dressing and marinade. In a blender or food processor, combine the raspberries, chipotles, lime juice, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth, then taste and adjust the spice level as needed by adding more chipotle or raspberries if needed.
  2. Pour ¼ cup of the dressing into a shallow container or zip-top plastic bag. Reserve the rest for the dressing. 
  3. Add the flank steak to the marinade in the container, and coat it evenly. Cover and marinate the steak in the refrigerator for anywhere from 2-12 hours.  
  4. While the steak is marinating, prep the lettuce, corn, onions, avocado and goat cheese. Chop butter lettuce, shuck corn, slice onions very thinly, crumble goat cheese and slice avocado (do this right before grilling).
  5. Lightly coat corn with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place pecans on a foil boat or a grilling-safe basket or rack. 
  6. When you’re ready, preheat your grill and then grill the Flank Steak on medium heat until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F, flipping once. This should take anywhere from 16 to 21 minutes depending on the thickness of the steak. 
  7. Grill the corn and pecans while the steak is cooking, rotating the corn as needed, until cooked and just starting to brown. I usually keep the pecans on the top rack or indirect heat until deep brown and toasted.
  8. Rest the steak for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain. Slice the corn kernels from the cob.
  9. Build the salad. Arrange lettuce on a serving platter. Add onions, avocado, goat cheese, grilled corn and pecans. 
  10. Thinly slice the Flank Steak against the grain. Top the salad with sliced steak and drizzle with raspberry chipotle dressing to taste.
