Ingredients

  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup diced peeled cucumber
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce, leaves separated

Directions
