M-J’s Elegant Southwestern Salad

Southwest_Salad_Elegant_Design_M-J_de_Mesterton
M-J’s low-carb southwestern-style salad starts with warm sautéed ground beef, onion and celery that has been flavored with chile powder or taco seasoning, which is topped with shredded cheddar cheese, finely-chopped romaine lettuce, tomato-chunks, dots of sour cream and green salsa. The ingredients in this individual salad are arranged elegantly and are only mixed together by the person to whom it is served. Bowls of additional sour cream and salsa can be available at your table. Eating hot salsa can raise one’s resistance to colds and flu, which are no longer just seasonal. Hot peppers such as cayenne, jalapeño and serrano also enhance one’s metabolism. Ground beef can be substituted with grilled chicken, and for the chile-pepper enthusiast, strips of broiled serranos can be artfully placed on the lettuce. This hearty salad is a good source of protein and health-promoting produce any time of year.
