Almost Mexican Salad *

INGREDIENTS:

  • Green leaf lettuce or romaine, rinsed and dried
  • avocado, freshly sliced
  • black beans or Northern/white beans, low sodium, plain, rinsed and drained**
  • plain corn chips (not seasoned, not spicy) or plain toasted corn tortillas
  • flank steak or comparable steak
  • salt, onion powder and/or garlic powder, if desired
  • cilantro, rinsed and dry*
  • PLAIN Chihuahua cheese, Gouda, shredded cheddar, or whatever cheese you love that’s safe

** Black beans are on the try it list, so I highly suggest subbing with Northern beans or any white beans to play it safe.

*Cilantro is irritating to me, so I skip it, as awesome as it is! 🙁

—> OMIT: Limes/citrus, bottled dressing, tomato, spicy seasonings, pico de gallo, guacamole because it’s usually prepared with lime, anything acidic, and also avoid spicy cheese like spicy chihuahua cheese.

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Season with flank steak with salt and onion/garlic powder, if desired.
  2. Grill your flank steak for best results.
  3. Make a bed of your clean and dry lettuce, chopped into bite size pieces.
  4. Add your sliced cheese, beans, chopped cilantro (if tolerable), sliced avocado, corn chips.
  5. If you need a dressing, I have found that bottled dressings are entirely unsafe especially with the preservatives and citric acid!  I use olive oil and honey and never have had a problem.  
  6. Enjoy!
