This is one of my favorite salads. Shrimp and avocado – this combo is pure heaven in my mouth. I love everything about it!
It’s so colorful and remind me of summer, which I am sooo looking forward to.
This salad is fresh, healthy, and light. This is important for those (including me) who don’t want to eat heavy and fatty foods before slipping into a bikini or a summer dress. Yes, girls, bikini season is coming up! You should think about it. 😉
It is so easy to prepare with a delicious end result. Just look at this bowl of yummyness! If I were in your place I wouln’t be able to resist making this salad for lunch today. Seriously, guys, you MUST taste this. I promise you will not be disappointed with this amazing shrimp avocado salad with yogurt dressing!
