Celebrating National Sandwich Day calls for a little more stylish sandwich so I'm planning to give Sirloin Pita Salad Sandwich a try! You can find other delicious and nutritious recipes at Dairy Makes Sense.
Sirloin Pita Salad Sandwich
For the dressing:
2 (8 oz.) containers of fat-free plain yogurt
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 tablespoon minced chive

For the sandwich:
1/2 pound sirloin or rib-eye steak,trimmed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 (4-inch) whole wheat pita bread rounds,cut in half moons
2 1/2 cups mixed salad greens (such as arugula,radicchio,and baby spinach leaves)
2/3 cup crumbled Blue cheese

8 cherry tomatoes,halved
Spoon yogurt into medium bowl and stir in garlic,parsley,chive and oregano until well blended.Set aside.
Rub both sides of steak with salt and pepper. Heat medium, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steak about 6 minutes on each side (for medium) or until desired. Allow steak to rest 5 minutes before cutting into thin slices.
Warm pita halves in toaster. Into each pita half, spoon 1/4 of the yogurt dressing,mixed salad greens,Blue cheese,onion,steak and tomato. Spoon additional yogurt dressing over top.
