Fajita Salad with a Cilantro and Lime Vinaigrette

Ingredients for the fajitas:
olive oil
chicken breasts or black beans- whichever you prefer
bell peppers
fajita seasonings-salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika
1/2 lime
Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onion and peppers. Also the black beans at this point also. Season them to your own liking. Saute for 3-5 minutes, leaving them still crisp. Remove vegetables from pan, add a bit more oil and sauté chicken. Remove the chicken and cut into thin slices. Place the vegies and chicken back into the pan on low heat to combine flavors and keep warm. Squeeze with juice of half the lime just before serving.
Ingredients for the dressing:
1/2 jar of salsa
1 lime
1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
1-2 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp sweetener- honey, raw sugar, stevia
handful of fresh cilantro leaves
garlic power
Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend for just a few seconds. It's that easy! You can taste it and adjust flavor to your own tastes. If you're brave, add a jalapeno or some chipotle peppers to add some spice.
This would also be perfect over rice or in tortillas too! Any way you decide to eat it... you will love!
