Southwestern Steak Salad with Fresh and Easy

This post is brought to you by Fresh and Easy

Can I just tell you about the double sided coin that is cooking for one (and a half)?

When it’s just me, I usually dread cooking for one. It’s no fun when you have to cook AND clean. πŸ˜‰

But, I eat so much healthier, meal time is quicker, and because of Fresh and Easy it’s even yummier.

Fresh & Easy thinks that fresh, wholesome food should be accessible and affordable to everyone. They offer a range of their own brand products and freshly prepared meals, in addition to other favorite top name brands.

We love popping into Fresh and Easy! The store is smaller and has just what you need without all the fillers. That’s perfect for me because I’m a mama with limited amount of time (I’m sure you can relate) and typically I’m running in with an uncooperative toddler. The small store size ensures that I won’t be rushing around the store looking for my necessary ingredients for more time than I have! Plus their staff is so friendly and available, if I ever can’t find what I need they are there to point me in the right direction.

Sometimes we run in just before heading to the beach for delicious and healthy snacks to take along.

Then sometimes we run for dinner supplies. I love their ready to cook pre-seasoned meats. The yummy carne asada is perfect for my southwestern steak salad! And this creamy cilantro dressing is my all time favorite. What’s awesome about Fresh and Easy is that if it has the Fresh & Easy name on it, it’s guaranteed to be free from artificial colors and flavors, transfats, high-fructose corn syrup or any other hidden nasties that are out there. How awesome is that? It feels good to have brands you can always trust.

Since there is nothing better then fresh produce – I can pick up everything I need for my southwestern steak salad in one place!

In addition to the fresh meat, they also offer fresh bread and fresh fish that is delivered fresh every day!

And for the days when cooking just seems impossible, they even have ready to go meal time solutions. Try the enchiladas. They are a fav!

My southwestern steak salad was the perfect summer salad. Packed with fresh veggies from Fresh and Easy, romaine lettuce, cilantro, red onions, avocado, and black beans. Topped with the savory and lean carne asada and the creamy cilantro dressing. It’s one of my go to meals for summer! Fresh and Easy Steak Salad-1

  2. I’m in the same boat 4 nights a week Chelsea. I’ve been better about getting into the habit of planning ahead to make sure I had a healthy dinner and not just eat what the kids didn’t. Haha. You are right. It is no fun cooking for one, but at least I get to make exactly what I want to eat! Haha. Anyway, this salad looks amazing and I’ll be adding it to my salad ideas! Thanks for sharing.

  3. That salad looks so good! I am a huge fan of Cilantro and Fresh and Easy, not sure how I haven’t food that dressing yet.
