Grilled Shrimp Salad with a Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette

Pin It
Chris and I have been craving healthy dinners the past few weeks, so I've been perusing my "Healthy Eating" section for some recipe inspiration. Salads always seem like the way to go, but I find myself having to add a lot of fixings so that we aren't starving a few hours later. A simple protein (like shrimp) and tons of other vegetables are an easy way to load up a salad and make it a hearty main course. Top with a delicious vinaigrette and you're done. Enjoy!
