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!!!
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!
