Today I want to share with you another yummy salad that I made myself for lunch this week. It was fresh, quick and delicious! For a vegetarian version just omit the shrimp.
Layers of flavors from fresh ingredients makes this salad a spring standout.

Erica..this salad is a killer!! with the oil spill we may not have shrimps as we did before..but while it lasts..this is must make salad!
Beautiful and colourful salad. I could have this as a main course.
Wow look at all those fantastic ingredients in this salad! Beautiful!
oh that salad looks great and so fresh!
I have been eating lentils, chickpea, and munng bean salads in my weight loss goal- Love them and I would eat that salad right up!
That is the kind of salad I could eat for lunch and dinner every day of the week; I noticed you are only using one tablespoon of olive oil: it is to watch your fat intake? or do you like so little?
Joumana- This salad doesn't need extra fat, because of the avocado. I love olive oil!
I love all the ingredients..except maybe avocado..but so easily substituted by cucumber..maybe? Love the salad and you are right..I can eat it every single meal 🙂
that's quite possibly the most colorful salad my eyes have ever seen. such an eclectic mix of ingredients, too--bravo!
That looks really lovely. I love using shrimp in salad, it really give the dish that fresh ocean breeze feel. Green salad is actually my favorite, I'll just toss in grilled shrimp and I'm all set for dinner, lol! This recipe of yours sounds interesting, I like the touch of avocado there. I'd definitely give this a try. Thanks for sharing by the way.
What a perfect summer lunch! I love all the pretty colors in this refreshing salad!
I want to lunch with you, Erica! That salad is so bright and beautiful!
Thank you everyone for the comments!
Great summertime lunch.
