Total time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 cups chopped iceberg lettuce
  • 4 cups chopped arugula
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 10 oz beef tenderloin, trimmed of visible fat and cut into 3-inch-long strips (1/8 inch thick x 1/2 inch wide)
  • 4 tbsp peeled and chopped avocado

DRESSING:

  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tsp whole black peppercorns, crushed or ground
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Set oven to broil on low. In a large bowl, combine iceberg, arugula and romaine lettuces. Divide greens among 4 plates. Arrange 1/2 cup mushrooms and quarter of each red pepper, cucumber and onion on each plate of greens.
  2. Prepare Black Peppercorn Yogurt Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, buttermilk, peppercorns, garlic and vinegar until smooth and incorporated. Season with salt and whisk again.
  3. Mist a small baking pan or stone with cooking spray. Place beef strips on pan and broil for 6 minutes, turning once after 3 minutes. Divide beef among salads (about 2 1/2 oz each). Drizzle each with 1/4 cup Black Peppercorn Yogurt Dressing and sprinkle 1 tbsp avocado over top.
