I made this recipe several months ago and we loved it. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to share it with you.

I made this during my short lived low glycemic phase.  I have made lots of salads topped with chicken and even pork but I haven’t used red meat before but I loved it.  Even with red meat this salad was very light yet filling and satisfying.  Even my sweet tooth felt satisfied!

I found this recipe while I was doing some looking around over at Pioneer Women’s Tasty Kitchen.

If you are firing up the grill this weekend for the holiday you may want to give this a try.  The flavor is wonderful and I loved the addition of the lime juice in the salad dressing.  Because of the brown sugar in the meat marinade the meat has a slight sweet taste too which I really enjoyed during that low glycemic phase!!

I am off to visit my boys in Utah for the weekend.  What are your plans for the holiday – what are you throwing on the grill?  Enjoy!

    Hi Leigh Anne! Here in PA, we’re having a family barbeque. My son just bought a charcoal grill/wood smoker and he’ll be making beef brisket and pork butt, both smoked with apple wood. I’m making Pioneer Woman mac and cheese and my first attempt at collard greens (never too old to learn something new!) Have a wonderful weekend with your boys and have a safe trip! Hugs!
