Great! It made it easy to prepare a "mom diet" meal that was also kid friendly (my kids had traditional fajitas with the toppings). The sweet meat with the tangy lime vinaigrette was my favorite part.

LOVED this! I also couldn't find pre-made lime vinaigrette, so I made a honey-lime vinaigrette from scratch. This was a great low-carb dinner I'll be making again.

We made this recipe last summer and loved it! Very healthy, light and refreshing. I will be making again this year!

Fantastic! The combination of flavors together, including the vinaigrette was light, refreshing, and out of this world. I couldn't find pre-made lime vinaigrette so I just used a simple recipe I found online to make it from scratch.

This salad makes a beautiful presentation-nice enough for company. The rub for the meat is delicious. My husband is not a big fan of lime, so I made a dressing using a blend of ranch dressing and salsa. I will definitely make this again.
