Welcome to the tastiest, most filling salad you will ever have! This Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad is the bomb.com. Fresh, tasty, satisfying with a sweet and tangy citrus dressing that is to die for.
Mr. N and I had it for dinner the other night. One thing I love about it is I didn't feel bloated at all. And it digests quickly. Also, I didn't have to eat anything else apart from the salad. I felt light but I was full. So if you are someone who eats late at night, this salad is for you.
Also, this salad is for everyone because it is just so good!
So yesterday March 1 started 14 days of clean eating. I started it off by sharing tips for clean eating in a Facebook LIVE video. I highly recommend you watch the video if you haven't done so already.
We are moving on today with this salad which is the salad of my dreams. It has two of my favorite things in life: shrimp/prawns and avocado. Then it has tomatoes. To make it even better, it has freshly boiled corn! Then there is lettuce, cucumber and onion. Such a nutrient-filled meal! Please try this at home!
I seasoned the shrimp with a pinch of salt and some white pepper because white pepper is so tasty! However, you could also use West African Suya Spice on the shrimp. So good!
Now let's talk about the salad dressing for a minute. It is a sweet zesty dressing made of freshly squeezed lime juice, orange juice, extra virgin olive oil, cilantro (you could use parsley), salt and pepper. Mix everything together and you'll be in salad dressing heaven.
This salad joins my repertoire of tasty, filling, healthy, insanely good salads. Like this simple avocado salad and this pasta salad. Can I just tell you something? Always have some avocado at home. Avocado is life! It is tasty, it is filled with healthy fats and it is so versatile. In fact, I panic when there is no avocado. I love the creaminess it brings to salads especially. So the next time you go shopping, buy all the avocado you can!
Okay, let me leave you to enjoy this Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad. Deliciosio!
