Fajita Garden Salad Recipe

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

For this recipe, you will need a Fajita seasoned meat.  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
  • tomatoes
  • Pinto Beans

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

  1. Hi Bren~~ You’re definitely an inspiration. Would you believe that just today I took a bunch of my saved flower seed and tossed it around in my garden? Not so much the edible, but, like you I’m partial to seeds as well. Your recipe looks delicious.

  2. We still have some bell peppers in the freezer as well. I hope to have more veggies in the freezer this year. You recipe looks wonderful! I’m not going to admit I have a ‘seed’ problem because I don’t want it fixed…lol

  3. I’m with you on the seed-aholic problem! Once you get started it’s almost impossible to stop. I found a company in the UK last year that sells old fashioned seed varieties that you can’t normally got hold of – I’ve been hooked ever since!

    Beautiful pictures – I am so hungry now!!
