Easy dinner for one tonight! The fam was eating meaty leftovers, which I don’t really eat anymore. So I whipped myself up this easy peasy salad. It’s loaded with veggies and topped with a quickly sautéed shrimp. It’s so easy and so delicious.
Think of this salad as a blank canvas – you can use any kind of green, any kind of protein (shrimp, salad, tuna, chicken, steak, beans, etc…), any veggies… it’s so versatile and easy!
So now it’s your turn! Tell me, what’s your favorite quick dinner that you love making? Happy eating!
