For the Salad

  • 4 ears of corn, shucked
  • 1 lb. Heinen’s pre-marinated ancho beef skirt steak
  • 8-10 cups spring mix and baby spinach, combined
  • 6-8 small vine ripe tomatoes, sliced into wedges
  • ½ cup green onions, sliced
  • ½ sweet onion, peeled and small diced
  • 1 avocado, seeded, peeled and sliced
  • 3-4 radishes, sliced
  • 2 cups corn tortilla chips
  • ¼ cup crumbled cotija cheese

For the Chipotle Ranch Dressing

  • 1 chipotle pepper with adobo sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • Note: If you don't want to make your own dressing, try Terrapin Ridge Cilantro Lime Dressing.


  1. Preheat the grill to high heat (450°F to 550°F).
  2. Add the corn to the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until completely cooked. Slice the corn off of the cob.
  3. Halfway through cooking the corn, add the skirt steak to the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until grill marks have formed and it reaches medium-rare to medium doneness. Set aside and rest for 2-3 minutes before slicing.
  4. In a blender, add the chipotle pepper and adobo sauce, milk and ranch dressing. Puree on high speed until smooth.
  5. To plate, place the spring mix and spinach into a large serving bowl and add the tomatoes, green onions, sweet onions, avocado, radishes, cooked and sliced skirt steak, tortilla chips and cotija cheese. Serve with the dressing.
