Preheat grill to medium high heat.
Season asparagus and onion rings with olive oil and salt.

Add 1 tablespoon of olive to flank steak, rub into both side. Season both sides with salt & pepper.
Place flank steak on the grill. Grill each side for 3-5 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. (make sure you slice it against the grain)
While the steak is resting add the following to a small food processor: a garlic clove, fresh cilantro, red wine vinegar, olive oil, lime juice, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper. Blend until smooth and looks like a dressing.
