Cook: 15 minutes


1½ pounds Lone Star Legacy® skirt steak
1½ cups herb & roasted garlic marinade (Newman's Own®)
1½ cups plain non-fat yogurt
1 clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons lime vinaigrette (Newman's Own®)
1 large seedless cucumber, ½ grated for dressing, ½ cubed for salad
2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
½ cup jar roasted red peppers, chopped
½ cup Kalamata olives, halved
½ red onion, thinly sliced
2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
Pita breads or pockets, quartered

Marinate steak with marinade for 30 minutes or longer.

Cucumber Lime Tzatziki Dressing
Make while steak marinates.  In a bowl, stir together yogurt, garlic, paprika, vinaigrette and grated cucumber.  Cover and chill.

Gyro Steak Salad
Heat indoor grill pan or outdoor grill over high heat.  Remove steak from marinade and discard marinade.  Grill steak on one side until golden brown about 3-4 minutes.  Turn steak over and cook to medium-rare, about 3-4 minutes more.  Let stand 5 minutes then slice thinly against the grain.  Brush pita triangles with olive oil then place on grill, watching closely, until golden brown.  In a large salad bowl toss lettuce, chopped cucumber, red peppers, olives, onion, tomatoes and feta.  Divide salad evenly among plates, top with steak and pitas.  Drizzle with dressing and enjoy.
