Grilling brings out the natural sweetness of the fruit, a perfect complement to bitter greens like arugula and the savory flavor of the steak.

1 fruit, 1/2 other carbohydrate, 3 lean meat
1 pound boneless top sirloin steak (about 1 1/2 inch thick), all visible fat discarded
4 medium peaches, halved
1 tablespoon canola or corn oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground preferred
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups spinach, spring mix greens, arugula, kale, or other greens
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons sliced basil leaves
2 tablespoons fat-free feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat the grill on medium high.
Put the beef and peaches on a large platter. Using a basting brush, brush the oil over the beef and peaches. Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the beef. Drizzle the honey over the peaches.
Grill the beef for 8 to 10 minutes on each side for medium-rare doneness.
Place the peaches on the grill with the cut side down. Grill the peaches for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until fork-tender.
Let the beef stand for 10 minutes before slicing it.
Arrange the greens on a large platter. Top with the grilled peach halves. Drizzle the peaches with the vinegar. Sprinkle with the basil and feta. Serve with the beef.
Cooking Tip: To cook the beef on the stovetop: Cook the beef over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes each side for medium-rare doneness. To cook the peaches under the broiler: Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Put the peaches cut side up on the foil. Broil for 6 minutes, or until tender.
Tip: You can substitute eight medium plums for the four medium peaches.
