Grilled Steak Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Summary

The simple blending of ripe avocado with Italian dressing adds lively flavor to this crowd-pleasing main-dish salad.

What You Need

  • 1 lb. boneless beef sirloin steak
  • dash of chili powder
  • 8 cups torn mixed salad greens (Use different colors and textures of salad greens for interest. Soft, pale green butter lettuce and crisp romaine lettuce would mix well with some peppery dark green arugula and red oak lettuce.)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onions
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat Italian dressing
  • 1/2 of a medium ripe avocados, peeled, pitted
  • 20 PREMIUM Saltine Crackers

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle steak with chili powder. Grill 5 to 7 min. on each side or until medium doneness (160ºF). Remove from grill; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 5 min.
  2. Meanwhile, toss greens with tomatoes, onions and olives; place on serving platter. Place dressing and avocados in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.
  3. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices; place over salad. Drizzle with dressing mixture. Serve with the crackers.
Variation

Dressing can be made a day ahead of time. Prepare dressing as directed; cover with plastic wrap, placing the plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dressing to prevent browning. Store in frig.
