Cajun Steak Salad is a hearty combination of steak, corn, black beans, red pepper, tomatoes, red onions, mixed greens, avocado, and crispy fried onions.


    Cajun Spice Ingredients
    1 tbsp. paprika
    2 tsp. ground black pepper
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1 tsp. onion powder
    1/2 to 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp. dried oregano
    1/2 tsp. dried thyme

    Salad Ingredients
    2 lbs. Sirloin steak
    1 cup fresh corn,
    1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
    1 red pepper, diced
    1 pint grape tomatoes, diced
    1 red onion, diced
    Mixed greens
    Avocado, diced
    Crispy fried onions

    Dressing Ingredients
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
    1 lime, squeezed
    2 tsp. Cajun seasoning


1. Use store bought cajun seasoning and/or make your own. To make your own, combine all the spice ingredients in a small bowl and mix until combined.
2. Coat the steak in the cajun seasoning. Grill and/or cook in a cast iron skillet until it reaches your desired doneness. Remove from heat and set aside. Once cooled, dice into bite size pieces.
3. Grill and/or cook the fresh corn on the cob. Let cool and cut the corn off the cob.
4. In a large bowl, combine diced steak, corn, black beans, red pepper, tomatoes, and red onion. Toss to combine.
5. If meal prepping, store the steak mixture separate from the mixed greens, avocado, and dressing. We divide this into 4 meals for 2 people.
6. When ready to serve, add the desired amount of the steak mixture to a large bowl. Add mixed greens. Toss to combine. Serve in bowls and top with diced avocados and crispy fried onions.
