Slofoodgroup Team March 24, 2021

Low-Carb Fajitas — all your favorite fajita fillings without the carb-heavy tortilla!

Whether you are dealing with extreme cold or ready to pop on your shades and hit the beach at a moments notice, a warm steak salad provides a quick, healthy, and satisfying meal.  We don't think salad should be reserved for summer—this one will soon become a year-round favorite!  It's packed with a variety of flavors, colors, and textures! It’s fresh, it’s creamy, it’s crunchy, it’s juicy, and tender. It is a low-carb, yet extremely filling meal on its own or the perfect party side dish. You can make your own taco seasoning using our spices, recipe here.
