Steak Salad with Lemon Yogurt Dressing


  • Author: Lynne Sampson Curry
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x

Description

A fresh salad loaded with vegetables and protein is just what we need to feel energized. But on a cold winter’s day we also need a topping to feel warm and full, that’s why we bring in the delicious steak.


Ingredients

Scale

Dressing:

  • 2/3 cup nonfat plain yogurt (preferably Greek-style)
  • 1 garlic clove (mined)
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Steak:

  • 1 rib-eye (stip loin or top sirloin steak (about 12 ounces))
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Salad:

  • 4 cups finely chopped hearts of Romaine
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large cucumber (peeled and seeded and chopped)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 1 14-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado (pitted and diced)
  • 1/4 cup pitted and sliced kalamata olives
  • 3 ounces crumbled feta

Instructions

  1. To make dressing, whisk yogurt, garlic, lemon zest, olive oil, vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl until smooth. Thin with up to 3 tablespoons of water so it dribbles off a spoon. Let stand at room temperature at least 15 minutes to develop flavors. (Can be made up to 2 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator.) Makes 1 cup.
  2. To prepare steak, preheat a gas or charcoal grill for high heat, pat steak dry and season with salt and pepper. Grill 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate and let rest 10 minutes before slicing into thin strips.
  3. To prepare salad, make a bed of romaine on a large serving platter and sprinkle on parsley. Arrange cucumber, tomato, chickpeas, avocado, olives and feta in mounds, and place steak strips in center. Serve with a large spoon for guests to make their own mix and pass dressing on the side.
