- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (3 small limes)
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon granulated garlic
- 20 ounces boneless petite sirloin steak
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 3 cups chopped romaine lettuce hearts
- ½ cup sweet red pepper rings
- ½ cup sweet yellow pepper rings
- 1 cup avocado chunks
- ¼ cup thinly shaved red onion
For dressing, combine yogurt, lime juice, milk, chives, garlic, salt and pepper in blender. Blend on low until smooth and chives are completely blended. Transfer dressing to jar with tight lid and refrigerate until serving.
Heat grill to medium.
Combine kosher salt, black pepper and granulated garlic to create rub. Sprinkle half of seasoning mix over one side of steak, pressing it into meat. Repeat with remaining seasoning on opposite side of steak.
Grill steak over direct medium heat to desired doneness, approximately 4–5 minutes per side for medium pink center. Remove steak from grill and let rest 7–10 minutes.
Toss spinach and romaine on large platter. Scatter red and yellow peppers, avocado and onion over greens. Slice grilled sirloin thinly against grain. Arrange meat slices in center of salad.
Drizzle dressing over salad just before serving.
