1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into ¼-inch-thick matchsticks
1 pound sirloin steak
Cooking spray
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
1/2 cup plain Greek-style low-fat yogurt
4 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2 tomatoes, diced
2 carrots, peeled and grated
1/4 cup ketchup


1. Preheat broiler. Spray sweet potato fries and steak with cooking spray. Place on separate baking sheets, and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Broil vegetables 20 minutes, turning once. Cook steak simultaneously for 20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 160� (medium) and fries until tender and crisp.

2. Combine yogurt, blue cheese, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Toss with lettuce, tomato, and carrot.

3. Cut steak into strips. Top salad with steak and serve with sweet potato fries and ketchup.
