Mix together the ingredients for the rub and then rub it evenly over both sides of the steak. Allow steak to sit for about 15 minutes.
If Grilling On An Outdoor Grill:
Prepare Charred Grilled Corn (instructions HERE). After corn is done, slice kernels off of the cob with a sharp knife.
To Grill Onions On Outdoor Grill:
Thread a wooden skewer crossways near the top of the onion and then slice off a 1/2 inch slice. Repeat until you have 3-4 slices that are no more and 1/2 inch thick, each with a skewer threaded through it, to keep it from falling apart. Brush slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over cool side of the grill, flipping a few times to keep from burning. Remove when tender and golden (about half an hour)
To Prepare Steak:
Grill on an outdoor grill over hot side of the grill. Grill for about 5 minutes on the first side, flip and grill for about 3 more minutes, or until internal temperature reaches desired level. Remove from grill and cover with foil, allow to rest for 5-15 minutes before slicing. When ready to slice, be sure to slice against the grain into thin slices.
If Preparing Indoors On The Stove:
Preheat oven to 425°F
Dice onion and slice kernels off of corn. Spread corn kernels and onion in an even layer on a large, foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Roast until soft and starting to turn golden, 20-25 minutes.
For steak, heat a grill pan over medium heat, grill 5-8 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches desired level. Remove from pan and cover with foil, allow to rest for 5-15 minutes before slicing. When ready to slice, be sure to slice against the grain into thin slices.
To Make The Dressing:
Combine all dressing ingredients in a jar with a tightly sealed lid. Shake until fully combined.
To Assemble The Salad:
Fill a bowl with mixed greens, top with corn, onions, tomatoes, avocado, steak slices and drizzle with dressing.
