This simple Carne Asada Salad is made with my favorite homemade carne asada, a light chipotle lime yogurt dressing, red onions, and tomatoes served over a bed of crisp romaine lettuce.
In a liquid measuring cup or medium bowl, stir together all marinade ingredients. Place beef in a gallon plastic bag or container and pour marinade over the top. Place in the refrigerator and marinate for at least 4 hours, preferably 24, flipping the meat halfway through.
Adjust the top rack in your oven so it’s about 4 inches from the broiler and heat broiler on high. Transfer meat to a foil-lined heavy-duty baking sheet or broiler pan. Broil for 4 to 6 minutes per side, until an instant-read thermometer reads 135°F for medium-rare, 145°F for medium.
In a small bowl, stir together all dressing ingredients. Add milk by the teaspoon until your dressing reaches your desired consistency and add more salt and pepper to taste.
Top romaine lettuce with sliced carne asada, avocado, tomatoes, and onion, and sprinkle crumbled cotija cheese over the top. Serve with the chipotle lime dressing and enjoy!
