    ciao's Note:

    This salad is delicious, and so easy! Tender strips of lime-garlic marinated steak, pinto or black beans, avocado, tomatoes, crushed tortilla chips, and more served on a bed of fresh greens with a wonderful tangy dressing. From a wonderful little book picked up in the bargain section at the book store--simply titled Easy Meals-Mexican. Very easy and fast to put together...don't let the ingredient list throw you.

      This salad has become a staple summer salad in our home. It tastes amazing and looks gorgeous on a plate. A hit with guests and even my 4 yr old and 18 month old will eat it! Only change is that I sometime omit the chili pepper because then it's too spicy for some.

      This was so very easy to make and so incredibly good. I grilled my steak, and I think next time I will plan ahead and let it marinate for a couple of hours so the meat can absorb more of the garlic and lime flavor. The only thing I didn't add was the tortilla chips as I didn't have any on hand.
