Chilled Shrimp Salad with a Lime Dressing (Gluten-Free)

Pin It
You'd think it was Lent or something with all the vegetarian meals I've been cooking lately. Sometimes I think it's refreshing to remove the red meat from my diet, though. It gives my body a little kick-start and makes me feel a lot healthier and a little rejuvenated. I recommend trying it out for yourself once in a while.
This simple salad is both refreshing and filling. The shrimp pieces scattered throughout really fill you up, plus the fresh lime juice, red onion, artichoke hearts and tomatoes add some crisp and light flavors. This is an easy weeknight meal or a nice substitute for lunch. You can eat this on a bed of lettuce or with some tortilla chips. Either way it makes a hearty meal. Enjoy!
