Low Carb & Keto Lunch Idea: Shrimp and Avocado Salad
Eating Keto or low carb and need lunch ideas?
If so, check out this healthy Shrimp and Avocado salad that’s anything but boring! The fresh lime and cilantro dressing makes it super flavorful and delicious. If you have the time, marinate the shrimp and veggies ahead of time with the dressing for maximum flavor.
I love salads for lunch because they are easy to customize with desired veggies and add ins. This simple dressing is very yummy and can also be customized by seasoning to taste. Next time I may add some cumin or Sriracha for spice! Yum.
