Top Flight Tacos

Not the average taco, this one has fillet mignon.  Because we shared one small steak, each of our meals was less than $4 a piece.  The toppings included:

Spinach-Arugula Mix, Northern Beans, Cherry Tomatoes & Cucumbers from my container garden, Shredded Reduced Fat Cheddar and  Kalamata Olives.

The steak dressing was inspired by Cooking Light  .  

Lemon Steak Taco
(Serves 2)

1-6 oz. Beef Fillet
Lemon Peel from 1/2 Lemon
Mrs. Dash
Sprinkle each side of fillet with peel and seasoning.  In pan sprayed with Pam, cook over medium heat 5 minutes per side.  Set aside on cutting board for 5 minutes.

2 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tsp. Canola Oil
Slice steak thinly across the grain (I use an electric knife).  Pour dressing over slices.

Our tacos were served on Whole Grain Corn Tortillas, heated in the skillet 20 seconds per side.

I purchased a small watermelon at our hospital Farmer's Market today.  Since it's "Super Moon" time, I cut a slice with my celestial cookie cutters.
  The sun was delightfully warm today.  This was a great finish to a nice day!
