Don’t toss those carrot greens! Instead, take a simply grilled flank steak to a new level with a brightly flavored carrot top salsa. The salsa comes together easily in a mini food processor. If you don’t have enough carrot tops, you can substitute half of them with fresh flat-leaf parsley. Serve this delicious flank steak with mixed vegetables or roasted potatoes.
