Dice everything really fine,
Add frozen corn (or canned) can of black beans,
drizzle, lime juice and olive oil over top, let sit for a few hours before serving in the fridge.
I marinated the steak for about an hour in a little chili powder and lime juice then cooked it in the grill pan.
To make the dressing you just combine equal part gucamole and sour cream (I used dairy free) usually I add in a little jarred salsa to get the right constitency but I was all out so I added a little lime juice and chili powder.
You serve over a bed of lettuce. With crushed up tortilla chips.

I served my salad along-side flounder. The flounder was baked in a foil packet topped with butter, onion, and garlic. We all agreed the flounder was both overdone and bland.
For the salad, I combined bits of two recipes from the Betty Crocker Italian Cookbook. Here's what I did:
2T chopped basil
5 cloves garlic (separated)
8c mixed greens
2t lemon juice
1/4c chicken broth
1/2 red onion
2/3 each red, orange, and green bell peppers
1) Cook basil 4 cloves garlic, and 2 cups greens in a little oil until greens are wilted.
2) Add lemon juice, honey, and chicken broth to the cook greens. Cook for approximately 3 minutes. Add to fresh greens and refrigerate at least 1/2 hour.
3) Cook onion, peppers, and 1 clove garlic in a little oil. Add to greens and enjoy.
I thought the salad needed more of the broth/lemon/honey mixture. Chris and our dinner guest thought it was fine though.
Chris made a Greek Salad. Not liking tomatoes or olives, I did not have any of this.
I like Greek salads but have never prepared my own before. It was pretty simple. I chunked up a couple roma tomatoes, half a cucumber, a green bell pepper, and a small red onion. I tossed all that with Kalamata olives and a dressing made of 3T olive oil, 1T balsamic vinegar, 1/2tsp dried oregano, and some salt and pepper and then topped with some sliced feta cheese.
It came out well enough. It could probably have done with a little less onion and more tomato.
