1 beef Skirt Steak (1 to 1-1/2 pounds)
2/3 cup chopped Kalamata and/or green pimento-stuffed olives
1/2 cup prepared non-creamy Caesar dressing, divided
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon minced garlic
|1.||Combine olives, 1 tablespoon dressing, lemon peel and garlic in small bowl; season with pepper, as desired. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.|
