Sirloin Steak Antipasto Salad
Juicy grilled sirloin steak makes the perfect addition to this light and crispy Mediterranean-style salad. Featuring the colors of crunchy romaine lettuce, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil, it’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.

Ingredients
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 beef top sirloin steak (about 1 pound and 3/4 inch thick), trimmed of fat
8 cups torn romaine lettuce
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
16 pitted kalamata olives, halved lengthwise
1 can (14 ounces) quartered artichoke hearts in water, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup fat-free Italian or Caesar salad dressing
1/4 cup fresh basil, cut into thin strips

Directions
1 – Prepare grill for direct cooking or preheat broiler. Sprinkle garlic and pepper over steak.

2 – Grill steak over medium-hot coals or broil 4 inches from heat 4 minutes per side for medium-rare or until desired doneness. Transfer steak to cutting board; tent with foil. Let stand at least 5 minutes.

3 – Meanwhile, combine lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and artichoke hearts in large bowl. Add dressing; toss well. Transfer to four plates.

4 – Cut steak crosswise into thin slices; arrange over salads. Drizzle juices from cutting board over steak. Sprinkle with basil.

Tip: Beef top sirloin steak is a versatile cut of meat that can be grilled, broiled or cooked in a skillet. When cooking steaks, use a spatula or tongs to prevent the loss of meat juices.

Yield: 4 servings.
