Fajita Salad w/ Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Leftover Fajitas are eaten rather quickly around our house, so if there is any hope to have a Fajita Salad, we have to claim what remains right away. Fajita beef, peppers, mushrooms, and onions over a bed of tender greens and avocado with a cilantro-lime dressing will make you think twice about getting wrapped-up in a tortilla.  It is fresh-tasting, Tex-Mex, Fajita Salad time!

Fajita Salad

1/2     recipe  Skillet Beef Fajitas — leftovers work great
6         cups  salad greens — chopped into bite size pieces
1          large  avocado — cubed
2          medium  tomatoes — chopped
fresh cilantro — for garnish
sour cream — for garnish

Cilantro-Lime Dressing
1        tablespoon  apple cider vinegar
1        tablespoon  lime juice
2        teaspoons  Dijon mustard
1        tablespoon  honey
1/3   cup  extra virgin olive oil
2        tablespoons  flaxseed oil
2        tablespoons  fresh cilantro — minced
salt & pepper, to taste

Create a bed of lettuce on a plate, layer the tomato and avocado on the lettuce. Add a layer of fajita beef, peppers, and mushrooms; accent with fresh cilantro and dot with sour cream.

Mix salad dressing ingredients in a carafe and shake well, or use a small bowl and whisk by hand.  Dress salad as desired.

Store leftover dressing in an airtight container to preserve flaxseed oil.

  1. mmm…this sounds delicious. We like our dressings quite a bit more vinegary than that, so I’ll probably add some extra vinegar or lime juice, but yummy, I want to make these right now! 🙂
