Sizzling Hot and Healthy Grilled Steak Fajita Salad
This grilled steak fajita salad recipe will for sure satisfy your Mexican food craving. You’ve got colorful peppers, spicy seasonings, sizzling lean steak and of course guac. Extra guac. Squeeze some fresh lime on top and you’ve got a fiesta on your plate.
Everyone loves fajitas but people often forget about them when the smothered burrito is first on the menu or when there are frozen cheese enchiladas in the freezer. This grilled steak fajita salad recipe takes no time at all and is a healthier alternative. If you plan on having some extra chips or a margarita (or two) I would suggest throwing your fajita meat and veggies on a salad or eating them naked if you’re watching carb portions. It’s a great weeknight meal option and the leftovers are great on salad. If you’re into food presentation, get a fajita pan set and bring the restaurant appeal home!
Grilled Steak Fajita Salad Nutrition Info:
Peppers- All peppers are loaded with antioxidants, but none so much as the brightly colored reds, yellows, and oranges. Great sources of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin B6 and Folate. So load up on some colorful veggies!
Steak- We use antelope or elk meat but the comparable cuts of beef are 95 to 97 percent lean. If opting for a steak, choose flank, tenderloin, sirloin, filet mignon or top round roast. Beef is a great source of protein, B-vitamins, selenium, zinc and niacin.
Homemade seasoning- Make your own! Avoid the extra sodium and it’s usually cheaper to buy spices in bulk. Chili powder, Garlic Powder, and Cumin are musts if you’re a fan of Mexican food.
Fajitas are a great meal prep option!
