One of the best things about home gardening is I can grow just about every vegetable that goes into a Fajita. What if you have leftovers from your grilled Steak, Chicken or Shrimp Fajita dinner?   In this post, I share my favorite Fajita Garden Salad Recipe that you can make fresh or use leftovers.

Fajita Garden Salad Recipe

It’s best to use fresh ingredients as much as possible so be sure to think out of the box when it comes to growing your garden this year. Wouldn’t it be amazing to grow everything you eat?   I am still working on the corn chips! 

Fresh Vegetables for the recipe
Fresh Peppers From My Home Garden

For this recipe, you will  not need a Fajita seasoned meat. That is right, the recipe can be made meatless. I came up with this recipe after having Steak Fajita leftovers from our favorite restaurant.  If you don’t have left-overs no worries because it is super easy to stir fry or grill fresh fajita steak or chicken.


  • green pepper( sliced)
  • red pepper ( sliced)
  • sweet onion (sliced)
  • olive oil
  • Romaine Lettuce

Did you know that fajita means ‘little sash’ or ‘ belt, strip, band’?  With this in mind, be sure to cut the ingredients in long narrow strips. This recipe was inspired by the Fajita Leftovers – you can make this dish without meat!!!

Peppers To Grow For the Fajita Salad Recipe

  • Peppers are super easy to grow for me in Northwest Ohio.  Big Bertha green peppers were one of the first peppers I ever grew in my home vegetable garden.  Below are a few of my favorite peppers to grow and use in this dish.  Do not limit yourself to one type of pepper when gardening.  They all grow in the same type of conditions so mix it up.  These are just a few of my favorites to grow ( and eat!) 
  • Big Bertha Pepper
  • Anaheim
  • Sweet Red Pepper
  • Hungarian Banana Pepper
  • California Wonder
