  • 1/2 pound beef tenderloin
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash coarsely ground pepper

  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sliced pimientos
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Cool for 10 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled.
  2. Thinly slice the beef; place in a small bowl. Add the onion, salt and pepper; toss to combine. Divide lettuce between two salad plates; top with beef mixture, green pepper, pimientos and olives. Combine sour cream and lemon juice; serve with salad.
