Mesquite Grilled Fajita Salad – El Torito GrillPosted: September 8, 2012
After a workout today, not only was I starving, but also craving BEEF. So I figured I could get a steak salad at El Torito Grill. They have a Fajitas Salad that is great! It starts with a salad mixed table-side that has romaine, sautéed pasilla chiles, bell peppers, onions, cotija cheese, jack cheese, fresh avocado, roasted fresh corn, and raspberry-tamarind vinaigrette.
You can add Mesquite grilled chicken, skirt steak, or shrimp, which comes on a sizzling platter just like when you get fajitas. The server mixes up the salad, and adds the sizzling meat and veggies on top.
Now for the best part. If you know El Torito Grill, you know that they have the best salad dressing on earth – the creamy cilantro pepita dressing. So sub that in for the the vinaigrette, and now you have steak salad perfection. The meat was tender and flavorful, the veggies seasoned perfectly, and my craving was totally satisfied.
