Recipe: Grilled Steak Salad with Chive Yogurt Dressing
Recipe Serves: 6
For the Dressing:
• 1 cup plain yogurt
• 3 tablespoons (3 small) freshly squeezed lime juice
• 2 tablespoons milk
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic, peeled and minced
• 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
For the Steak:
• 20 oz. boneless petite sirloin steak
• 1 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
For the Salad:
• 3 cups baby spinach
• 3 cups chopped romaine lettuce hearts
• 1 cup (1 small) peeled avocado chunks
• 1/2 cup sweet red pepper rings
• 1/2 cup sweet yellow pepper rings
• 1/2 cup thinly shaved red onion
Prepare the dressing by placing the yogurt, lime juice, milk, chives, garlic, salt, and pepper into the carafe of a blender. Blend on low speed until the dressing comes together and the chives are completely incorporated. Transfer the dressing to a jar with a tight fitting lid and refrigerate until serving.
Combine the kosher salt, black pepper, and granulated garlic to create a rub for the steak. Sprinkle half of the seasoning mix over one side of the steak, pressing them into the flesh. Repeat with the remaining seasonings on the opposite side of the steak. Grill the steak over direct, medium heat to desired level of doneness. A one-half inch thick petit sirloin should cook approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side to achieve a medium pink center. Remove the steak from the grill and let rest for 7 to 10 minutes on a cutting board while preparing the salad.
Toss the baby spinach and chopped romaine lettuce together on a large platter. Scatter the sweet bell peppers, avocado, and shaved red onion over the greens. Slice the grilled sirloin thinly against the grain. Arrange the meat slices along the center of the salad.
Drizzle dressing over the salad just prior to serving.
