Steak Salad

Courtney is babysitting this summer and Ryan is life guarding and they are both on fairly random schedules. It's all I can do to keep up with who will be home for dinner at what time.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those mom's who prepares separate meals for everyone when they happen to roll in the door. I fix dinner at one time and the kids know that if they're late, they are responsible for reheating their own meal. 

This steak salad recipe from taste of home was a perfect, eat-whenever-you-get-home, kind of meal.  Ben and I had is as a salad, Courtney and Ryan made it into a taco.  I bought ultra thin steaks which cooked up super quick and they were delicious. 

Grilled Steak Salad
1 beef top sirloin steak
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 large tomato, chopped
15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup minced cilantro
2 teaspoons lemon zest
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 avocado, diced
1 cup corn

Combine salt, garlic powder, paprika, thyme, cumin and cayenne pepper.

Brush steak with oil and sprinkle with seasoning.


Combine remaining ingredients.

Serve with sliced steak.

This was really tasty and I ate the leftover tomato/corn mixture for lunch the next day with some baked tortilla chips.  (Super yummy)
