1 large bunch fresh parsley
2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
3 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon chipotle hot pepper sauce
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
8 ounces salad greens
10 ounces chevre
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat).  Combine parsley (with stems), oregano, and garlic in processor; blend 10 seconds.  Add 1/2 cup oil, vinegar, and hot pepper sauce; blend until almost smooth.  Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

Brush grill rack with oil.  Sprinkle both sides of steak with salt and pepper.  Grill steak to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.  Transfer steak to work surface; let rest 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss greens in large bowl with some dressing.  Transfer to large platter.  Dot chevre over greens.

Thinly slice steak across grain on slight diagonal.  Arrange steak atop greens.  Drizzle with remaining dressing.

Yields 6 servings.
