Steak Fajita Salad

Steak Fajita Salad Recipe

I really like Mexican food (ok, I’m obsessed with it!) and so do my kids. A lot of my favorite meals have a Mexican theme, and this steak fajita salad is one of my all-time favorites! It is really easy to make and can transform leftover beef (almost any cut) into a stellar meal. This is great for dinner or lunch (I’ve even had it for breakfast!) or as a to-go meal (just stick in a big container or plastic bag and toss/shake with salsa before eating)

I’ve also found that making this as a mason jar salad is a great way to bring it along for a meal on the go. To do this, layer the cooked meat and vegetables at the bottom, then add any toppings like cheese or sour cream (if using) and then the lettuce and mixed greens.

I typically make several days worth of these salads in mason jars and keep in the refrigerator for simple lunches on busy days. As long as you layer correctly, and keep the meat and salsa on the bottom.

  • skirt steak, flank steak or similar cut, thinly sliced-about 1/2 lb per person raw weight

I’ve also found that making my own Taco Seasoning and Fajita Seasoning is a simple way to save money and avoid the additives, MSG and other unnecessary chemicals in store bought seasonings. I also always have these on hand when I need them and can easily add them to omelets, stir frys and casseroles to add flavor and nutrients to any recipe.
