Spicy Shredded Beef Salad with Avocado Sauce

Here’s one of the cool things about leftovers: Lots of times you can re-make them into a tasty new dish – like this awesome paleo shredded beef salad! 

As I mentioned in my recent Slow-Cooked Spicy Shredded Beef Tacos post, the first night we made this savory slow-cooker meal as soft tacos using my Paleo Tortillas with some salsa thrown in.

And then the next day I made a salad with just the shredded beef. All I did was slice some romaine, scattered pieces of the shredded beef on top, tossed in a few diced bell peppers and avocados, and squirted some leftover Avocado Cilantro Lime Sauce on top, and that’s it. A refreshing salad done in minutes.

And by the way, this salad is pretty amazing. You’ve got the spiciness of the shredded beef alongside the crisp and refreshing romaine lettuce, and then it’s all topped with the avocado cilantro lime sauce which adds a great little kick of flavor to the whole thing. Really, really tasty and healthy.

So if you make the slow cooker shredded beef, keep this low-carb leftover paleo salad recipe in mind!
