Rich, nutritious and a tasty salad has a special spot on our dinner table every night. I love Romaine lettuce and so are my kids. I make it Paleo friendly with adding different meats, fish and fat for a complete nutritious meal. Today’s recipe is a delicious easy summer shrimp salad with a mediterranean taste. How does this sound to you?
I made this salad for my husband and his friends few weeks ago and everyone was asking for the recipe since it was very easy to make and also very tasty.
In my experience the secret for a good tasty salad comes from the vinaigrette you use. I never buy salad dressings or dips. First, to avoid the bad ingredients and second, because it’s so easy and much more tasty to just make it at home. Checkout the salad dressing I made to go with this recipe here.
I so use to high quality olive oil from North Africa m parents collect from their own olive trees. I just discovered Kasadrinos olive oil and finally having a blast adding a spoonful for every meal I eat and cooking my favorite mediterranean dishes with it. Get it here if you like to try it out.
I also discovered a Paleo friendly very high quality spices that I am loving. Check them out here.
