Imagine the sound of waves crashing up on the shore and the smell of suntan lotion filling the air. There’s nothing better than a beach vacation where you’re enjoying the idea of having nothing else to do but relax and have people bring you cocktails and fresh salads. Now if you come back to reality you can still enjoy a moment for yourself with this fresh, Summertime Shrimp Salad before we move into the fall and winter months.
There’s no better time than the end of summer to snap up all of the fresh vegetables that you can before they’re gone. The base of your salad can include a mixture of lettuces, shredded carrots and cabbage for the ultimate crunch. Topping it off with ripe avocado, tomatoes, colorful peppers and cucumbers will give your salad a summertime feel that everyone will enjoy.
When you’re serving a salad as an entrée it’s important to add protein. Hardboiled eggs are a great addition to this salad and shrimp is an easy topping that you can flavor and cook in a lot of different ways. Marinating the shrimp for this salad in olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of Freeze Dried Salad Herb Blend will give a light flavor to the salad.
The best topping to keep this salad light and beachy is Litehouse Purely Balanced Garden Ranch Greek Yogurt Dressing. This dressing will keep your salad low in calories but high in protein and flavor. Give this salad a try for lunch or dinner this week and imagine yourself relaxing on the beach in the salty sea air.
