{Recipe} Southwestern Steak Salad

So the past few 6 months I've been completely slacking & not taking care of myself at all. I was stress eating up until the wedding...legit the only bride who probably put on the lbs before the big day.  Then, after the wedding it was all honeymoon & "We're married now, who cares?!"  Except my pants are starting to notice it & well, I'm not in the mood to buy all new clothes. I mean, I ALWAYS want to shop, but not because my old clothes no longer fit!  So, it's time to get back on the stop being a lazy ass & start to eat better train. I make salads all the time but I never remember to blog them. So, last week I decided to amp up our salad game & what better way than adding steak?

I bought a very lean, organic rib-eye steak that worked out beautifully.  We J grilled the steak using our grill pan since our actual grill is quite out of commission.  This salad took minimal effort & is so easily modifiable to your taste buds.  J & I were also really surprised that one smaller bowl easily filled us right up!

Serves: 4-6
Prep time: 35-45 mins (depends how fast you are at chopping veggies)
How difficult was this for me? Not bad at all!

  • .75-1 lb rib eye steak, lean
  • 1 packet pre-made taco or fajita seasoning
  • 1 head lettuce, chopped - you can really use any lettuce of your choice, I use romaine
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 chopped purple onion
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 3/4 cup low sodium black beans
  • 3/4 cup sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • Dressing of your choice, I used a pre-made cilantro lime dressing because I am lazy

I mean, it's a salad...it has to be somewhat self explanatory...but here you go

Season the steak generously

Over medium heat, grill those bad boys (you can also sear in a skillet...works just as well!)

For a steak salad, I prefer the meat to be a little more pink so our steaks cooked pretty quickly

While steaks are cooking, chop the veggies...of which I took no photos. So here's more of the salad.

Once the steak is done, I let it cool for 5-ish mins & then trimmed off the little fat there was. The dogs loved it!

Mix it up & enjoy! (This is actually not a good picture, but you get the idea)
