Southwest Steak Salad

southwest steak salad4

Happy Friday! I feel like I’m doing things backwards around here …

Last Monday I posted a brownie (treat yo-self) recipe, and now on Friday I’m here sharing a healthy salad that will brighten your week. Uhh .. well, oops.

This salad is my new weekday lunch jam! It’s got all of those crunchy vegetables that make me feel like I’m being especially  smart and healthy, and it has steak and mayonnaise. Meaning it automatically makes your mouth water.

The inspiration for this healthy salad actually came from a fast food joint. Whaaaat? Yep. The other day I heard a commercial on the radio for a southwest steak salad, and I knew what my next recipe would be! A traditional “southwest” salad will come with corn, beans and a creamy dressing with who-knows-what in it. Not this one, folks!
