Chili Lime Shrimp Salad

A Summer of #SALADS

If you are anything like me, you cringe at the word salad.  Because, lets face it, often times they can just turn out BORING. 

I'm on this cool eating plan that really emphasizes eating TONS of veggies and salads are really the perfect way to accomplish getting them all in. So I decided, instead of just begrudgingly chomping down on the cliche tomato, cucumber, balsamic salad everyday, I would make an effort to Jazz up my salads. 

Introducing the feisty and ever so delicious

Here is how to what you need to make this bad boy

(Please know Im NOT A person who measures things, I just eyeball it, so nothing is specific-use your creativity and tastes!)


  • Lettuce (duh) You can choose spinach, romaine, red lettuce (anything you have in your fridge as far as greens go)
  • Shredded Carron

  • Ground peanuts (or cashews if you have a peanut allergy of prefer them


  • Olive oil
  • Lime Juice
  • S&P
  • Garlic (crushed or dried)
  • Agave (you don't need much-around a tsp)
