Bell Pepper and Green Bean Fajita Salad
This is a very simple crisp side that's loosely based on a fajita, and so it's especially tasty with a grilled steak. If you like a little heat, sprinkle with a pinch of your favorite fajita seasoning, such as chili, cayenne, or cumin just before serving, and of course, you can add leftover grilled steak slices to the salad and/or roll into a wrap!
1 Tbsp. lime juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 c. thinly slivered red onion (or other mild onion)
1 green or colored bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
1/4 - 1/2 lb. thin -or vertically/diagonally sliced- green beans (or purple, yellow beans)
Optional: 1-2 Tbsp. snipped parsley, carrot tops, and/or cilantro
Whisk together the lime juice and olive oil; season with salt. Allow onion to marinate about 15 minutes, then toss in the peppers and beans. Garnish with snipped herbs if using.
