Looking for a high-protein salad? This delicious Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad recipe is fresh, healthy, and quick and easy to make!
We are having warm and beautiful days in Toronto and of course, I’m enjoying every minute of this nice weather. My mom is in town and we’ve been walking around the city. I’m glad the weather is good because last time she visited, it was February and she did not like the cold weather.
Today, we walked by the lake Ontario and visited the Toronto Music Garden. What a gorgeous park, full of flowers. It was a lovely afternoon! I got home feeling much better and happy for living in a city with lots of green space and nature.
And of course, when the weather is nice, you want to eat fresh and colorful meals. At least I’m like that. For lunch, I love eating a big bowl of salad with some protein just like this Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad recipe.
What I love about this recipe is that it’s packed with protein from the shrimp and eggs. You’ll feel very satisfied and energized to enjoy your afternoon. It’s also gluten-free and low-carb. If you don’t add feta cheese, it’s paleo-friendly too. This Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad recipe is also so quick to prepare. Shrimp cooks very fast and while you’re chopping the veggies, your eggs are being boiled.
