We love making sure to schedule salads into our meal planning, especially between those heavier and meat-focused dinners. One of our favorite dishes to make is this Roasted Shrimp and Avocado Salad. It is fresh, flavorful and surprisingly filling! Plus, it works great as a lunch option, and who doesn’t love bringing something homemade and totally clean into the office?
