This satisfying salad makes a fine summer supper or buffet offering. The pasta, broccoli, tomatoes and strips of sirloin are lavished with a light dressing based on low-fat yogurt.
*Sirloin is a relatively lean cut of meat. Lean cuts should not be grilled past the ‘medium’ stage, or they'll toughen. Very thinly slicing the meat across the grain also helps to enhance its tenderness.
*Corkscrew-shaped pasta such as rotelle or fusilli is just one option for this dish; you could use any other short pasta shape.
*The salad can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. Bring the salad back to room temperature before serving.
Enriched pastas and other grain foods are great sources of folate, a B vitamin that is essential for a healthy heart.
