Recipe to Try: Shrimp & Avocado Salad

I will be moving into an apartment soon, which means I’ll be in charge of not starving. I’ve been trying to be healthier (hopefully I don’t go broke) and luckily my parents are willing to be my guinea pigs.

***I promise this was yummier than it looks***

Ingredients:

20-25 Shrimp, good for about 4 people

2 Avocadoes

2 Bags of Salad Mix

1 Can of Chic Peas

1 Bag of Frozen Corn

1 Bag of Frozen Peas

1 Container of Yellow Tomatoes

Directions:

  1. Put Shrimp into luke warm water. Let sit for a few minutes.
  2. Drain and Rinse Chic Peas. Put into seperate bowl.
  3. Put Peas & Corn into slightly warm water. Let sit for a few minutes.
  4. Once shrimp is no longer cold, drain it. Then add lemon pepper (or just lemon juice). Put onto the stove & cook on each side until pink. I’d cook it at medium, medium/low.
  5. Empty Both Bags of Lettuce into the ugliest bowl you have. for aesthetic.
  6. Cut your baby tomatoes in halves, and pit & slice your avocadoes.
  7. Throw everything into your salad. (My sister doesn’t like chic peas so they were served on the side which is why they aren’t show in the picture)

I chose to put Parmesan Peppercorn dressing on mine & thought it was fabulous, the healthier option probably would have been olive oil, though.
