4 Beef Tenderloin steaks, cut 1-inch thick (about 4-5 ounces each)
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 slices seedless baby watermelon, cut 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
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 11-15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 13-16 minutes) for medium rare (145 degrees) to medium (160 degrees) doneness, turning occasionally. Grill watermelon 2-4 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.
