Instructions

Salad Directions:

  1. Wrap the corn in foil and bake at 375ºF for 20 minutes. While they’re cooking, roast the black beans on a pan on low heat and cook the bacon.

  2. Remove the corn, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill it on a stove top until cooked through.

  3. Cut the corn off of the cob, put in a bowl with the field greens and all other salad ingredients.

Steak Directions:

  1. Heat the oven at 350ºF. Mix all of the spices and olive oil in a small bowl.

  2. Put the stove on high heat. Add the vegetable oil to a grill pan. While the stove is heating, sprinkle salt and pepper on the steak. Place steak on the grill pan and sear the outside (about 2-3 minutes on each side). Remove steak and place on top of a large piece of foil.

  3. Lather the steak with the cajun spice marinade and cover the steak completely with the foil. Place on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for another 18-20 minutes or until the inside is no longer red. Serve on top of the salad.

Chipotle-Lime Vinaigrette Directions:

  1. Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl and drizzle on top of the salad.
