Zesty Beef And Rice Fajita

This is a good time to use some of that leftover roast or even  pork tenderloin sliced thin, of course.


  • 1 cup zesty salad dressing
  • 1 pkg. fajita seasoning mix
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1¬† 1/2 lbs. roast or pork, sliced thin
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1 cup thinly sliced radishes
  • 8 cups mixed spring mix greens
  • 2 avocadoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup roasted bell peppers, sliced thin
  • 1/3 cup, roasted pumpkin seeds (sans shells)

In a bowl, combine the dressing, 1 tbsp. fajita seasoning, 1 tbsp. lime juice and 1 tsp. lime zest. When well mixed, set aside.

Sprinkle some of the fajita mix over the meat. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together the rice, tomatoes and radishes.

On 6 plates, divide the greens, arrange the rice mixture over the top, finishing off with the meat, sliced avocadoes and peppers. Drizzle dressing over each salad, putting the extra in a creamer and setting on the table for anyone to add to their salad. This is a win-win dinner.

Sprinkle each plate with the pumpkin seeds.
