Cowboy Steak Salad with Creamy Salsa Dressing √

Serves 4.

Note: Espresso powder gives the chili powder-based dry rub a subtle, but important “cowboy” touch. If you can’t find espresso powder, you can substitute instant coffee granules. The steak can be grilled one or two days ahead of time.

• 1 tbsp. chili powder

1 1/2 tsp. finely ground espresso coffee powder

• 1/2 tsp. brown sugar

• 1/4 tsp. salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

• 1 (1-lb.) flank steak, trimmed

1/4 c. well-shaken low-fat (1 1/2 percent) buttermilk

• 2 tbsp. low-fat mayonnaise

• 2 tbsp. low-fat sour cream

1/4 c. commercial low-sodium salsa

8 c. coarsely torn hearts of romaine lettuce

1 c. fresh corn kernels or frozen, thawed

• 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

• 1/4 c. whole fresh cilantro leaves
