1. Combine all ingredients for dressing in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add diced pepper and sauté 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the beef and chili powder to the pan and sauté 5 to 6 minutes, or until meat is well-browned. Stir in the salsa and cook for one minute to combine.
3. Place 1 1/2 cups chopped lettuce onto each of four plates. Top each salad with 3/4 cup of the meat mixture. Sprinkle on 1/4 of the green onions, 3 tablespoons cheese and 3 tablespoons of dressing. Garnish with tomato wedges and optional tortilla strips, if desired.
Yield: 4 servings. Serving size: 1 salad (1/4 of recipe).
