Summertime is a time of outdoor cooking for many of us. One of the most popular recipes in my house is shrimp and avocado salad – a simple dish of shrimp, avocado and a perfectly cooked egg topped with a spicy chipotle sauce. In my mind, this is the epitome of an easy weeknight meal. And, while it was quite simple, there were a few things I was able to do to improve the recipe and make it even easier to make.

Yes, you can have your shrimp and avocado salad and lose weight at the same time. In fact, it’s possible to lose weight and feel great by completely changing the way you eat. Keto is an eating pattern that gets your body into a fat-burning state, where your body burns fat for fuel instead of carbs. If you’re finding it tough to lose weight on other diets, why not give keto a try?

I love keto dinner ideas!

Try this healthy salad recipe with shrimp and avocado – it’s anything but boring! A dressing of fresh lime and cilantro makes it very tasty and delicious.

Lunch salads are so easy to vary with vegetables and additions. This simple vinaigrette is delicious and can be supplemented with herbs to suit your taste. Next time I’ll add cumin or sriracha for seasoning! I like it.

Femur: If you have time, marinate the shrimp and vegetables in the sauce ahead of time for optimal flavor.

I love this salad!

It’s such a simple and savory dish! This is a great lunch idea that can be prepared in advance and taken to work during the week. If you are making the salad ahead of time, separate the pickled vegetables/shrimp from the lettuce so the salad will keep longer.
