  1. Trim fat from steak. Thinly slice steak across the grain into bite-size strips (see Tip).
  2. Coat an unheated, large, nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add steak and sweet pepper to hot skillet. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes or until steak is desired doneness and sweet pepper is crisp-tender; drain. Add dressing to skillet. Cook and stir until heated through.
  3. Divide the salad greens among 4 dinner plates. Top with the beef mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and, if desired, black pepper. Serve immediately.
  • Tip: Partially freeze beef for easier slicing.
