Yum Alert: Citrus Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Written by Deisy

This shrimp and avocado salad recipe has everything I’m obsessed with in it: Lettuce and citrus. I am citrus obsessed. Like I eat lime with everything, which is probably the reason I look 12 and not 21. I also tried to go vegetarian in the 9th grade (it didn’t work out so well) and discovered my long lost love, the lettuce. Now, I eat lime and lettuce almost everyday. If you aren’t into the whole eating-lettuce-and-lime-alone thing, here is an equally satisfying salad recipe. Image and recipe via From The Little Yellow Kitchen.



12-14 shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 tablespoon lemon pepper

1 teaspoon salt
