Primal+Keto Cooking Made Easy: Tex-Mex Fajita Veggies

The last couple weeks I’ve grilled up some great Primal+keto meat dishes: steak and marinated chicken. But I’m a big believer in above ground, non-starchy vegetables for a Primal and keto diet. One of the things I love about this recipe is that it shows how vegetables—even cooked ones—never need to be a bland afterthought. These mixed peppers and onions are flavorful all on their own, but the seasonings and dressings turn this into a great side that will hold its own against any meat dish.
