Greek-Style Beef and Pasta Salad
Mint and lemon give this dish a decidedly Greek flavor. If you like, add some fresh dill too. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
8 ounces ziti
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
3/4 pound well-trimmed beef sirloin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
In large pot of boiling water, cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, and 1/4-teaspoon salt. Stir in green pepper, tomato, and mint. Add warm pasta, tossing to combine.
Preheat broiler. Rub beef with remaining 1/4-teaspoon salt and oregano. Broil 4-inches from heat for three minutes per side for medium-rare. Let stand ten minutes before cutting into bite-size pieces. Add to bowl with pasta and toss to combine.
