{Tasty Tuesday} Spring Shrimp and Cilantro Salad

Happy tasty Tuesday!

Today I’ve got a fresh, bright, and flavorful salad coming to ya! I got inspiration from Kristin’s recipe and from here a while back! The biggest change to my initial salad is the addition of quinoa! I am so glad it was in the mix!

I did a huge shopping haul at TJ’s last week and I got a bunch of fresh avocodos, limes, and cilantro! My favorites! I chose to add steamed shrimp to mine but you can totally keep this veggie if you’re going to savor this on a meatless Monday!!!photo 1 (48)

There is crunch from the fresh salad greens and onion, sweetness from the corn, and a creamy texture from the avocado!  This recipe is sure to please any palate!
