Ingredients

4 beef tenderloin steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 4 to 5 ounces each)
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 slices seedless baby watermelon, 1 inch thick (about 1 pound each)
Salt and pepper
8 cups baby arugula or spinach leaves
1/4 cup reduced-fat balsamic or Italian dressing
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese

Instructions

Combine coriander and cumin; press evenly onto beef steaks.
Place steaks in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange watermelon slices around steak. Grill steaks, covered, 11 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 13 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Grill watermelon 2 to 4 minutes or until grill marks form, turning once.
Carve steaks into slices. Cut each watermelon slice into 6 wedges. Season beef and watermelon with salt and pepper, as desired. Combine arugula and dressing in large bowl; toss to coat. Divide arugula among four serving plates. Arrange beef and watermelon on salad; top evenly with tomatoes, onion and cheese.
