Easy Southwest Salad with Certified Angus Beef and Fresh Corn

This Easy Southwest Salad recipe is perfect for lunch or a light dinner. I’ve been looking for easy gluten free recipes in an effort to reduce the processed foods in some of the kids’ meals. With kids, they want easy so they usually turn to sandwiches. With a few grab and go salads in the refrigerator, they’ll have other options. I am a Certified Angus Beef Ambassador but am sharing this recipe simply because we love it.

Easy Southwest Salad with Certified Angus Beef

I modified this recipe a bit from the Certified Angus Beef site so that it used things we had on hand. The original recipe called for grilling a flank steak outside. Since it’s still too cold to grill in Vermont, I started with Certified Angus Beef stir fry meat to save time. I also left out the avocado since we didn’t have one, and I had no time to run to the store. I’m all about easy in the kitchen.

Easy Southwest Salad with Certified Angus Beef

I found a great selection of Certified Angus Beef at our local Price Chopper in Rutland. For all my local readers, make sure that you look there for the beef for this recipe. If you’d like to add more greens to the recipe, you can serve it on a bed of lettuce.

Easy Southwest Salad with Certified Angus Beef and Fresh Corn

We are huge fans of southwest cooking which I guess makes sense since my husband is originally from Texas. We regularly have meals of my famous crock pot chili, white chicken chili, and chicken enchilada stew. Don’t forget to finish the meal off with a Mexican Mochaccino.

I hope you’ll have a chance to try my easy Southwest Salad soon!

    A vey healthy and piquant-looking mixture of foods there!
  7. I like this recipe because it has ingredients I have on hand and just need some fresh corn and beef. I usually get some fresh veggies including cilantro or parsley every week and peppers are healthy and tasty to keep around for snacks too. It's hard to keep avocados around since they ripen so quickly.
  8. This looks tasty! Thank you for the recipe. I'll be making it later. :)
  9. This is my kind of salad!!
