Makes: 6 servings
Prep: 20 minutes
Marinate: 24 hours
Grill: 17 minutes

Ingredients

12  ounces  beef flank steak
1/2  cup  bottled light clear Italian salad dressing
1/2  teaspoon  finely shredded lime peel
1/4  cup  lime juice
2  tablespoons  snipped fresh cilantro
1/4  cup  finely chopped onion
1/4  teaspoon  salt
1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
4  cups  spring baby salad greens
1  medium  red sweet pepper, seeded and cut into bite-sized strips
1  medium  avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and thinly sliced
3    whole wheat pita bread rounds, halved

Directions

Score both sides of steak in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals. Place steak in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish.

In a screw-top jar, combine salad dressing, lime peel, lime juice, and cilantro. Cover and shake well. Pour half of the salad dressing mixture into a small bowl and add onion; cover and chill until serving time. Pour the remaining salad dressing mixture in jar over steak in bag. Seal bag; turn to coat steak. Marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Drain beef, discarding marinade. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. For a charcoal grill, grill steak on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 17 to 21 minutes for medium doneness (160°F), turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place steak on grill rack. Cover and grill as above.)

To serve, thinly slice beef across grain. In a large bowl toss together beef, salad greens, red pepper, avocado, and reserve dressing mixture. Fill each pita half with beef mixture.
