Fajitas on the Grill

  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing

  • One 1 1/2-pound flank steak

Note: If you don't have a basket for grilling the veggies, make sure to cut them large enough and place them crosswise on the grill to keep them from falling through the grill rack. The standard way to serve fajitas is topped with sour cream and guacamole -- but go ahead and add any of your favorite toppings.
