skirt steak + corn salad with tangy lime & ranch dressing

cilantro garlic skirt steak salad with lime ranch dressing


I made this for lunch today – it came together very quickly and was super tasty. Both wins in this household! It was inspired by another recipe I had, but I adapted it for what we had on hand.

Skirt Steak & Corn Salad with Lime-Ranch dressing


  • skirt steak (4 – 5 thin steaks sliced into 1/2″ strips, or pre-sliced)
  • sofrito (I freeze mine in ice trays and I used 2 cubes for this recipe)
  • 2 limes
  • 2 ears of corn on the cob (you could use frozen or canned corn)
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1/2 cup pico de gallo (store bought or homemade)
  • spinach leaves
  • ranch dressing


  1. Combine first two ingredients in a bowl and squeeze the juice of 1 lime over it. Toss to mix, set aside.
  2. Boil water for your corn on the cob (if applicable, other wise, cook your frozen or canned corn to warm it up). Boil corn for about 5 minutes and then remove from water. Slice kernels off the cob into a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Warm a skillet on medium high on the stove, with about 1 teaspoon of oil. Add steak and cook just until steak is no longer pink. Remove from heat.
  4. Assemble a large pile of spinach leaves on a plate. Spoon about 2-3 tablespoons of pico de gallo and black beans on top of spinach. Sprinkle the same amount of corn (more/less if desired) on top of pico. Arrange steak on top of corn.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 Tbsp of ranch dressing with the juice of one small/medium lime. Divide and drizzle dressing over 2 salads. Serve immediately.

Serves 2.

  1. This looks SUPER yummy!! And quite possibly something easy enough for this non-domesticated wife to make :)

  2. I love meals like this in the summer time — cook the meat on the grill, throw together the salad, and voila!
