What I'm eatting.....

This is by far my favorite new recipe, thanks Pinterest for this one!

Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Finally a recipe, where I actually like all the ingredients! I also love the fact it is a cold salad made with out distrusting mayo. Perfect for the hot summer weather! It's light, healthy, and best of all it tastes great. This recipe is from a great blog for healthy easy recipes- Skinny Taste!


  • 1 lb jumbo cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, chopped

  • 1 medium tomato, diced 

  • 1 hass avocado, diced

  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced fine

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion  (used a bit more)

  • 2 limes, juice of

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro ( I used a lot more)

  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

  • How to:

    1. In a small bowl combine red onion, lime juice, olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. Let this marinate at least 5 minutes to mellow the flavor of the onion.
    2. In a large bowl combine chopped shrimp, avocado, tomato, jalapeƱo.
    3. Combine all the ingredients together, adding cilantro and gently toss.
    Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
