Pretty simple prep, I have a charcoal grill, so I marinated the steak and assembled the salsa (without the corn) first. When my coals were ready I grilled the corn and steak at the same time, then while the steak rested, I cut the kernels off the cob and finished the salsa. Served with flour tortillas, shredded cheese, and Greek yogurt (I was out of sour cream), these were delicious! I had the leftover steak and salsa over romaine lettuce with wasabi ranch dressing for lunch the next day. We'll definitely be having this again.

A little prep time involved, but great tasting, easy meal to make. I added a can of mild chopped chilies for more of a bite. The skirt steak marinade is easy & delicious!
