Mexican Spiced Steak with Cauliflower Salad

This steak with cauliflower salad it is fresh and full of flavor! This dish is very easy to make and can be done in about 30 minutes.

Growing up in Argentina I was not familiar with Mexican flavors and cuisine until I moved to the United States. Now, living in San Diego, I embraced their ingredients and spices and love to combine them in different ways to come up with healthy recipes.

This recipe calls for steak but you could use chicken instead. I would like encourage you to consume grass-fed beef any time you can. I am used to eat lots of meet, but in the last few years I learned that I don’t need to consume that much protein and started to reduce the amount of meat and to invest those dollars in better quality meat.

I hope you try and enjoy this recipe! 🙂
