  1. To make dressing, whisk yogurt, garlic, lemon zest, olive oil, vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl until smooth. Thin with up to 3 tablespoons of water so it dribbles off a spoon. Let stand at room temperature at least 15 minutes to develop flavors. (Can be made up to 2 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator.) Makes 1 cup.
  2. To prepare steak, preheat a gas or charcoal grill for high heat, pat steak dry and season with salt and pepper. Grill 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate and let rest 10 minutes before slicing into thin strips.
  3. To prepare salad, make a bed of romaine on a large serving platter and sprinkle on parsley. Arrange cucumber, tomato, chickpeas, avocado, olives and feta in mounds, and place steak strips in center. Serve with a large spoon for guests to make their own mix and pass dressing on the side.
