Shrimp Salad

This shrimp salad was so tasty and so easy to make!  Many times salads are lacking in something, whether it be protein, carbs, fats, or let's be honest- taste.  This salad isn't lacking in any of the above!  Protein (think: shrimp), vitamin C (think: tomatoes, onions, avocado, pineapple), fiber (think: tomatoes, onions, avocado, pineapple), and monounsaturated fats (think: avocado), this salad has it all!

So why is shrimp the bomb?

  • It's low calorie.
  • It's high protein.
  • It's high in selenium.
  • It's high in B12.
  • It's high in cholesterol (and who cares?!  Reseach shows that we should be much more concerned with saturated and trans fats than cholesterol).
