These days I have been more preoccupied making baby food and getting myself PR's at the gym than I have trying out new recipes. But the old faithful recipes are getting used up and I am finding myself once again looking for some new fresh ideas.
One of my FAVORITE things to do is go to Nordstrom, have lunch in the cafe, and then shop. If it is an extra special day this will include buying some shoes and lipgloss. The best thing to order at the cafe is a lime cilantro chicken salad. I stumbled across this salad dressing recipe and I was instantly inspired. I added steak to mine, but you could add whatever meat you have in your fridge. I guarantee you will love this fresh, full flavor salad. When I eat this, I almost feel like I am at Nordstrom, minus the shoes and lipgloss of course. ;)
Fresh Lime Cilantro Steak Salad
1/2 of a large avocado
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp ginger
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3-4 tbsp water (enough to thin out the dressing)
Add all ingredients, minus the water, into a food processor. I used my magic bullet, and it was perfect. Blend until smooth. Add water one tablespoon at a time until you get desired consistency.

Grilled Flank Steak (We just BBQed our flank steak with salt and pepper)
Toss dressing with lettuce and plate with other ingredients on top. Enjoy!
