Why Do Salads Make Such A Great Meal?

Lunch can be a tricky meal. You know you should be eating something to keep your blood sugar levels even and your metabolism running high. At the same time, you can’t be eating anything too heavy or you will be dozing off shortly after lunch. Salads are the perfect solution! They make nutrient dense and filling meals without weighing you down. Best of all they are healthy and mostly low in calories.

Makes 4 servings 
• 3/4 pound lean top beef/chicken round steaks, cut into thin strips 
• 2 tablespoons each ketchup and lime juice 
• 1 clove garlic, minced 
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 
• 4 cups shredded lettuce 
• 1/2 cup each: diced seeded cucumbers, green bell pepper, red bell 
pepper, and seeded tomato 
• 1/4 cup each: chopped fresh cilantro and thinly sliced scallion 
• 1/4 cup fat-free French salad dressing 
• 4 6-inch corn tortilla

1. Place beef in a shallow dish. Combine next 4 ingredients; pour over beef and
toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or overnight, if desired.
2. Meanwhile, prepare salad: Arrange lettuce on a large serving platter or shallow
salad bowl. In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except tortillas, and
toss to coat. Spoon over lettuce, leaving a 1-inch border. Salad may be
refrigerated if not serving right away.
3. Remove beef from refrigerator. Heat large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add
beef and cook, stirring 3 to 5 minutes or just until cooked through; remove from
heat. Warm tortillas according to package directions; cut each into thirds. Wrap 2
to 3 pieces of beef in each tortilla strip. Arrange decoratively on top of salad.
Serve additional French dressing on side, if desired.
