Sunday Salad

Saturday, September 25, 2010 |

I have been so hungry for mexican food the past few days. We don't have a really good mexican fiesta near us here in Connecticut. But if you're ever in Michigan, I can give you directions to the best little hole in the wall you've ever been. I assure you that I've tried many mexican restaurants on our tour of the US. This salad certainly took care of that craving. Just for the record, it's not one of *those* cravings ;)

Fajita Salad
lettuce of your choice
1 orange pepper cut into strips
1 yellow pepper cut into strips
1 red pepper cut into strips
1 medium red onion cut in half and then sliced
2tbs olive oil
1tbs fresh lime juice
1tbs soy sauce
1 large tomato cut in half and then sliced
1 cup grated cheese of your liking
1/2 can of black olives sliced in half
1/2 cup guacamole
1tbs sour cream
1/2 cup salsa verde
1 chicken breast grilled and sliced
1 small sirloin steak grilled and sliced

Combine all the peppers and onion in a zip lock bag. Add the oil, lime juice and soy sauce. Let this marinate for at least a half hour. I have a grill basket that I put the peppers and onions in so they won't fall through the grill. Grill the chicken and steak after the veggies are on. Remove when the peppers and onions are tender and the meat is done to your liking. Let the meat sit for a few minutes before slicing.

On each plate begin with lettuce. Add slices of meat followed by the peppers and onion. Sprinkle on grated cheese. Add a dollop of guacamole, tomatoes and top with black olives.

My secret dressing ~ it's very complicated. Ready?
Mix the sour cream and salsa together. Drizzle over salad.
Yep, it's that easy and super yummy!
