Dry-Rub Steak with Fresh Fruit Salsa

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 3 ounces beef and about 1/3 cup salsa)
Serve with Bohemia or Negra Modelo, Mexican beers that will complement the Latin spices. Or try Gordon Biersch, a full-flavored Marzenbier that goes well with beef. The salsa is best if prepared just before the sirloin is grilled.
