Let's Make It
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle steak with chili powder. Grill 5 to 7 min. on each side or until medium doneness (160ºF). Remove from grill; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 5 min.
Meanwhile, toss greens with tomatoes, onions and olives; place on serving platter. Place dressing and avocados in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.
Cut steak across the grain into thin slices; place over salad. Drizzle with dressing mixture. Serve with the crackers.
Best of Season
Use different colors and textures of salad greens for interest. Soft, pale green butter lettuce and crisp romaine lettuce would mix well with some peppery dark green arugula and red oak lettuce.
This recipe is also a great way to use leftover cooked steak or roast beef.
Dressing can be made a day ahead of time. Prepare dressing as directed; cover with plastic wrap, placing the plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dressing to prevent browning. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.
