Build a Tex-Mex Steak Salad

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. If you are new to my blog then you might not know that I changed my diet to improve my health. Has it worked? Yes, it has. I see a functional medical doctor who revamped my diet and has me on supplements. I also see a western medical doctor who has seen my blood reports and other medical tests and has taken me off all but one of my medications.

I love summertime. But hate to cook when it is so hot out. I don’t think anyone wants to use their stove or oven in the summertime. Therefore, most people I know BBQ or make something that is not hot to eat. I love all kinds of greens and so do my kids. In fact, we almost always have a salad with our meals.

Do you ever have the problem of thinking “What am I going to make for dinner?” Well, I do too. I had gone to the local Farmer’s Market and purchased baby kale, a huge red onion and I had spinach. Love the local fresh foods that I can get in the summertime.

I had leftover tri-tip roast in my fridge. I thought why not a steak salad. Add any kind of lettuce or greens that your family prefers. This salad is super tasty and filling. Of course, you can also just make a huge bowl of it and serve alongside your favorite dressing or use my Creamy Tex-Mex Salad dressing, French Onion Dressing, Maple Mustard Sauce/Dressing or Terragon and Herb Salad Dressing.

1/2 – 1 lb (leftover) tri-tip roast

1/2 cup sliced onions

1/2 cup chopped peppers

3 baby cucumbers

1/4 cup chopped turnip

1/2 cup shredded cheese

1/8 cup cilantro

2 cups spinach

*2 cups baby kale

2 cups romaine

2 teaspoons avocado oil




*tortillas chips Siente Grain Free Chips


*Homemade or store-bought salsa


Fry 1/2 the onions and peppers in avocado oil. Sprinkle the onions and peppers with a little salt and cumin. Put all the ingredients into different bowls and allow your family to build their own salad. Great with my creamy Tex-Mex dressing.
