Eat– for Good Health

My Santa Fe Steak Salad, made with flank steak, is a low calorie man pleaser.   If you are on the Gold Standard Plan, limit the steak to 3 ounces.  This cuts the calories from 350 to 250.

Santa Fe Beef Salad

Ingredients– 4 servings

2 tsp oil

1 lb flank steak, about 1 in. thick

dash of salt and pepper

2 bags, 11.5 oz each, salad leaves– your choice

4 sliced, plum tomatoes

1 15.5 oz can black beans

1 avocado, peeled and sliced

Light Thousand Island dressing, served on the side

Garnish with 1/4 cup (2% milk) grated cheddar cheese

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Season with salt and pepper, cook in skillet, turning once for about ten minutes for medium doneness.  Or, use the George Foreman.  Let rest for a few minutes before slicing across the grain.

Arrange salad leaves on plates, top with evenly (or not evenly!) divided steak, tomatoes, black beans, avocado, dressing, and grated cheese.  A few blue tortilla chips can be placed on the side.  Three is the limit for a Golden Girl.

    Beautiful salad, and I know my husband will enjoy it– with a beer and lots of tortilla chips! Glad I don’t have to make something separate for me. I have seven holiday pounds to lose. I bought your book, Kathleen. Wonderful! I’m totally inspired.

    Thanks, Janessa. The paperback will come out in a couple of days. Someone who also ordered an eBook told me she printed it from her computer so that she had the recipes when she went to the store.

    Kathleen, I have a feeling there will be people with your book on Kindles and other readers. Maybe they’ll bring them while shopping!
