Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using tuna, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add tuna to hot pan and cook until tuna reaches desired doneness, 1-2 minutes per side for medium-rare (some pink in the center). Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness. Add to salad as desired.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Cook shrimp until opaque and shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. Add to salad as desired.

  • If using diced chicken, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side. Add to salad as desired.

  • If using filet, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and cook until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Add to salad as desired.

    Make the Salad

    Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. In a mixing bowl, combine guacamole and dressing until smooth. Add spinach, tomatoes, and banana peppers (to taste). Toss or gently stir to combine. Top with chickpeas and feta (crumbling with your hands, if needed). Bon appétit!
