Fajita Salad

These are from my lovely Paleo Takeout book.

To start I made the marinade:

  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
  • juice of 1/2 orange
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder


Combine marinade ingredient in a blender and mix away! Doesn’t have to be super smooth.  We cut our steak prior to the marinade and I think the recipe actually says to cut it afterwards but oh well. Ours was still slightly unthawed so it made cutting thin easier.
    Pour in the marinade and let sit for a minimum of 30 minutes. We left our for most of the day while we were out and about.
    When you’re ready, cook the steak. I didn’t realize you are actually supposed to pat the steak dry before but we added some of the marinade into the pan with it. If we had a grill or bbq that would for sure be the way to cook it!
  Cut 2 onions and 2 peppers. We chose to add mushrooms as well.
  Pan cook until soft  To make a salad, make a bed of lettuce and layer the meat and veg on top.
  Optional but highly recommended: Cheese, sour cream and salsa. We opted for store bought salsa because we felt like it :p
