Shrimp Salad With Honey Jalapeño Dressing

Shrimp Salad With Honey Jalapeño Dressing

Shrimps are more than just a tasty seafood option, they also bring a lot of nutritional benefits to the table.

They are low in calories but packed with protein. Shrimps are also a good source of several important vitamins and minerals, like B12.

In essence, shrimp salad is a delightful and nutritious choice that combines the goodness of shrimp with the freshness of vegetables. It offers a balanced blend of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making it a go-to option for a satisfying and health-conscious meal.

What I like about this salad is it’s spiciness that comes from the dressing and Pico De Gallo.
