Flavorful Flank Steak and Tomato Relish

As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about…….. loving more delicious dinners on the grill! I’m always so inspired by the fresh and beautiful flavors of the summer, especially sweet and juicy tomatoes. One of my favorite memories of my grandfather is eating the tomatoes we helped him pick right off the vine from his garden. Maybe that’s why I am so partial to this Flavorful Flank Steak with Tomato Relish.

Just like the Boy Scouts, I love to be prepared! This dinner is so tasty and simple; you’re going to love it too.
