It was only after I got married that I realized fruit salad and yogurt do not a dinner make -- at least not for Hubby. Now, I happen to love a really good salad, but Hubby doesn’t really take to those single-girl-I-use-my-oven-for-storage-recipes from my repertoire.
So I came up with the perfect compromise: a salad that eats like a meal. Sorry you’ve actually got to turn on that oven and your stove, but it’s worth it. My Southwestern Steak Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing is guaranteed to warm you and fill you up at the same time. It’s great for dinner when you want to go light on the carbs at the end of the day. If you don’t want to use steak, you can substitute chicken, tofu, or even grilled fish. And hey, it’s still in essence a salad, so you get all the major health benefits too.
Once you try this fab Steak Salad, you’ll be looking for more dinner salad recipes. Take your pick:
• Spicy Thai Beef Salad
• Spicy Roasted Corn Avocado Salad
• Chicken Salad with Honey Tahini Dressing
• Warm Salmon Salad with Crispy Potatoes
• Thai Beef Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce Dressing
• Crunchy Tofu Thai Salad

These dishes will satisfy everybody, even the man of the house. Don’t you just love when we all get along?
