One of my favorite things about warm summer weather is cooking outside. Whether it’s simply a meal from our back porch grill or over a campfire, there is something so magical about getting out of the kitchen, you too? And it can’t get much more easy or delicious than my Grilled Guacamole Flank Steak with Halloumi Kebobs!
Let’s be real, when you walk into a grocery store which offers REAL FOOD that is this easy and beautiful, it’s almost impossible to chose anything else!
… and the flowers. Oh the flowers. No dinner table is complete without a fresh bouquet of flowers, right?!
P.S. this is a little off topic, but that hard side shopping bag I grabbed at The Fresh Market is totally amazing. I’m glad I got 2!
I admit that my shopping list gets abandoned when I walk into The Fresh Market. I honestly get so inspired and get a little carried away… My easy grill out meal for the Memorial Day weekend, turned into a buffet!
Not that anyone complained… Ray (my hubby) and Caitlyn (our niece) were more than gracious enough to enjoy the awesomeness I impulse-bought while I prepped dinner!
I didn’t have bruschetta, olives and bread on my list for pre-dinner apps, but boy and I glad that I splurged! That bruschetta topping is perhaps the best I’ve ever had and it’s pre-made at The Fresh Market deli and it’s especially good served on their bakery garlic bread which (duh) I spruced up on the grill (see those pretty grill marks!)
The Fresh Market makes delicious eating so easy!
Almost as easy as my Grilled Guacamole….
Yep, it’s seriously that easy and so worth the extra step – Just grill up on your guacamole ingredients, even the lime! Add lots of fresh cilantro and season to taste!
Keep that Grill HOT, we’re going to keep using it for the entire meal!
Have you had Hallumi? It was love at first bite for me. Squeaky cheese that doesn’t melt only browns when heated, which makes it the prefect addition to your tradition vegetable kebobs!
Yeah, so I also grabbed some pre-cut pineapple for dessert too.
If you haven’t made grilled pineapple you’re missing it’s the prefect summer healthy dessert! (No seasonings or anything extra, just grill pineapple, easy-peasy) I grill up pineapple and keep it in the fridge, it’s even better chilled the next day!
And of course I grilled a Flank Steak too.. I needed something to hold all that guacamole deliciousness!
Season your flank steak and toss it on the grill, have you noticed that Easy Theme?!? Let it rest while you set the table, then slice it thin and spoon your Grilled Guacamole over top – Isn’t it beautiful?
I hate to sound cliche, but…. I literally can’t….
Is your mouth watering? Mine is, I’m actually counting down until I enjoy leftover for lunch today!
Do me a favor, this summer when your making a delicious meal take the time to celebrate.
Spread out a festive table cloth, plate up your food beautifully, use the good napkins…
Tell the family wait for the presentation. Make the meal into a memory!
This weekend head to The Fresh Market and grab goodies to make these Grilled Guacamole Flank Steak with Hallumi Kebobs, your whole family will LOVE them, I promise!
For the Flank Steak
- Liberally season your flank steak with sea salt, black pepper, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and some olive oil.
- Allow your flank steak to marinate at room temperature while grilling your guacamole ingredients.
- Drizzle Avocado, Jalapeños, Onion and Lime with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a hot grill for 2-3 minutes, just to get those pretty grill marks and to lightly cook.
- Allow veggies to cool enough to handle, then make guacamole as usual. Seasoning to taste with additional sea salt, pepper and as much fresh cilantro as you prefer. For additional spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes. Set aside, can be chilled or served at room temperature.
- Grill your flank steak on high heat... for medium rare 2-3 minutes per side or until it reaches an internal temperature of 130 degrees. Remove from the grill, cover with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes (while cooking kebobs)
- Assemble kebobs, lightly drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, leaving grill marks on the veggies and halloumi but not over cooking.
- Thinly slice your beautiful flank steak, top with grilled guacamole and serve with halloumi kebobs. Enjoy.
